How big is your tank? If the rock is cured you should be able to add more than that.

If it is fully cured LR rubble from the LFS you shouldbe able to add it all at once. Just make sure you get a good history from the LFS and it is transported wet.

Adding cured lr will have no bad effects. If it in the LFS main tank I would say that you will be safe because he would be having issues if it was not cured.

How big is the fuge? and why so much LR..

The fuge is about 10 to 12 gal, Im going to put up to 5 lbs in the fuge and the rest in the main tank... not all in the fuge.
