I've recently got some live rock from someone, but it has since died off. I have rinsed it off and scrubbed it and added to our saltwater tank. Right now the only thing in the take is live sand, "dead" live rock, and a few pounds of cured live rock.
Both of our lfs
states that the old rock can be brought back to be new again. In all of my reading I've read how to cure uncured rock, or to place cured lr
into the tank. One lfs
states to use Seachem reef builder and reef buffer to the tank to promote growth on the old rock. The other lfs
states to use only calcium and a product to sustain dKH
Does anyone have any experience with this that can clear up a cloudy situation. I know that it has to grow for a while before adding fish, but not sure how to go about promoting the growth of the bacteria and such on the "dead rock"
Thanks for your time,
Dawn and Chris
