When you say the word 'OFF' what do you mean?

Aside from the article that I linked to you in another topic about the only thing I do in addition is use a med bristle nylon brush and scrub areas of obvous decay/dieoff. THen rinse in saltwater a few times and place back into the curing vessle.

Curing the LR is easy. Check out the article on this site for info. The main benefit of LF is as biological filtration, everything else is like a bonus. What you actuall see growing on your LR will greatly depend on the lighting system you have on your tank. You do not need light to cure the rock and the benifial bacteria do not require it. However, once in the tank good lighting will be required to cultivate the growth of coraline algea and whater "goodies" happened to come in on your LR. Good luck...Lando

It dont mater if its cured or not cause you will need to cure it when you get it shipped anyway.
