just got rock!

just got my key rock... i'm all paranoid still whether or not to put right into my tank.

the vendor says to just throw it in

anyways, what's that orange stuff on the rock? is it dead? should i scrub it off?

and what is that colorless lumpy thing? it's kind of whitish.

"White" looks like it could either be a type of sea hare or stomatella varia.

Cheers

LOL Donoree, I had to laugh when I read your post because I figure I'll be the same way when I get my first batch of LR. (what is that?, what is this? kill that? scrub this off? haha)
