Storing My live rock for about a Month

Right now i only have a few pieces of cured live rock that i need to remove from my sump because im starting the process of breaking down my tank..

My question is ... can i just throw that live rock in a 10 gallon tank with some water till saturday with a pump heater and airstone or should i put it in a larger container, something like a 16 gallon rubbermaid.. i just dont know if more water over the live rock would be better than just using the little 10 gallon tank..

ALso, should i just use a fresh mixed batch of saltwater for the live rock or just remove some of the water from my tank and use that instead..

My lfs always told me to place the rock in a container with a Powerhead. Preferably with water from the tank. No heater needed. This shop has never steered me wrong.

You must have a heater if it is cold where you are, or there will be die off

you'll defiantly need that heater... I'm from Reading Ma.. my house was 56 (inside ) last /Saturday morning (I'm not turning on the heat until Halloween!). ... have you been to Oceans in Glass in Salem N.H... their live rock, coral and fish are top notch..
