Live rock

How long would live rock survive in a bucket of saltwater but with no heater or circulation

It really depends on the ambient temperature.

I'll be keeping it my house so water will probably hold between 60 and 70

Hard to say. I had a couple buckets of live rock I let sit inside for a few days. House was around 78 though. And I also can't say for certain how much die off occurred in the process. It did keep me from having to cycle my son's 29g tank though.

I had 160# of live rock sitting in tubs with no heat or power heads. I finally got it in my 150 2 weeks ago and barely had a cycle. Stayed around 70 the whole time
