LR after Hyposalinity

OK, I assume that after my hyposalinity treatment, the LR is dead. How does it become a live again once I raise my salinity? Besides bacterica, how do I get a chance to have other stuff in there like our other hobbyists?

They find worms etc there. My rocks look like rocks and algae, that's it.

yes, it all becomes live again over time. the hyposalinity has likely killed off a lot of things, but a fair amount should recover. one thing you can do is check your LFS and see if they offer LS from their LR tanks, etc. Tell them you're specifically looking for 1-2 pounds of sand with pods/worms etc to replenish your LS. Yes, much of the same critters live in both the LS and LR.

if your LFS doesn't offer anything there, you can check out garf.org and look for one of the LS rejuvinators.. i think thats what they call them.

of course, you could also just buy another 5-10 pounds of LR to add to the tank

As you know now doing hypo in the main is a bad idea. I would recommend buying a small amount of nice LR like from liverocks.com. I think you will get better life and a good variety of coralline.

Should I worry about possible ich outbreak again once I add more (even possibly uncured) lr?

garfs product is called "garf grunge" If Im understanding BillyZ's post correctly..

are you asking if the new LR can host ich? if the LR has not been housed with fish for a couple of weeks or longer there is no chance of ich.. it needs a fish host to survive...

But can remain encysted for upto 30 days, although extremely rare sometimeslonger. It only needs a wet surface.

Untreated, the total life cycle (all stages) can be as long as 40 days. The tomont alone can remain encysted for much of that time...
