I previously had a saltwater reef about up until a year ago. I had a 29 gallon tank with about 70 pounds of LR
(in the refuge too). Anyway, to make a long story short, I have about 70 pounds of LR
sitting in an old fish tank in my basement. As we all know, it would be expensive to replace all of this LR
in the new tank, if I decide to start again. Is it possible to use this LR
even though its been dry for about a year now? Also, if I can use it, what steps are necessary to get it back to life (if possible). I am basically going to be setting up a nano (20g). My previous tank had some kind of "disease" that took out all of my corals - I never really found an answer (all parameters were always very pristine, 0's across the board with the proper levels of calcium, iodine, etc. If it was in fact a disease that did kill the corals, could it survive all this time on the rock out of water for almost a year? If I have to buy new LR
its not a problem, just dont want to spend money when I dont have too. Any comments appreciated.
