Please Help ... Thanks !!!

I was woundering if I were to take live rock from my local sea, what would I do with it and would it be fine to use as a filtration system in my tanks.

If you did you would probably have a lot of die off since the Atlantic ocean (around England) is cooler than typical saltwater tanks...

I would say no. Nothing on the rock would survive the temp change. No coral grows near england, so none of the rock would have anything you'd want as far as calc content either.

I'd get rock from a source that cures it first, unless you want to cure it yourself. Long process.
