My tank is up and running now how long should I wait to put my live rock from my other tank in. My salinity And PH are perfect. There will be no die off of the live rock.

if both tanks are up and running right now with the "same" water, just pull it out and put it in the new tank, so long as you dont have any stock in the new tank, if you do, take out some water into a bucket of your old tank water, that way you can submerge the rock and just twist and shake it under water to get all the junk and settled stuff off the rock so it wont cloud your new tank at all, if your not too worried about this at all, just pull the rock and scape your new tank.

it will only Benoit of the water for 10 seconds. That's not any time for die off. Do I have to acclimate the rock? Just dawned on me.

companies ship their live rock with wet newspaper draped over it. as long as the rock is damp, it should be ok. being as to how youre going from one tank to the other, you wont experience much of anything...especially in a 135

I am going to say no. 2 reasons being 1) its a huge volume of water, so it can absorb water chemistry swings better. And 2) you are going from established tank to the 125. Also the only thing youll prob see is the new tank adjusting to its own levels. Im sure its levels wont settle at exactly the same as your current tank, other than that youll e fine
