You should have told me, I have about 30 pounds of good, cured live rock.

Cure this thing really well. This rock will be full of leaching phosphates. I've been doing a lot of reading about hobbyists' experience with this rock.

I got 60#s for my 40 breeder and could only put maybe 35#s in it. I then traded a 19# piece to my lfs for smaller already cured live rock. As far as phosphates leaching I cured mine in a 32 gal brute for about 1 1/2 months while collecting the rest of the pieces for my system testing weekly I never saw any phosphates. Not sure if I got lucky but it worked out well for me. Good luck!

I've been using base rock for years and have never had anything leech. I rinse and toss it in and have never had any problems.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Can someone come over and rinse this for me? Lol. I need two people to hold it and spin it while I shoot it with the hose! Lol. I highly doubt it'll fit in my tank that I'm picking up Saturday.

Pakuni is different from the other 2 rocks offered by brs. They write in bold letters stating these rocks do have phosphates since they come from the ocean. I dont remember The other 2 rocks having such descriptions. There was a long thread in RC regarding this issue.

Now I'm frustrated because I went back and forth deciding which rock to buy and I said I'm not buying the phosphate one but I think I mistook it for the reef saver. How do I cure this then?

Never mind. I'll look for a thread on it. I might just not set up this tank anymore because I've run into so many problems and wasted so much money already. My other two reefs didn't give me any trouble.
