Well, I have never cycled with uncured liverock.... but, couldn't you always dip the rock in freshwater before you cycle to get some of the creatures out? I guess my point is that we should do our very best to ensure the members of our tanks are happy and healthy.
Yes we should and I never doubted that that was exactly your intention.
It has just been my experience that some inverts are much hardier than fish. Look at it this way, when lr
is shipped, it is taken out of the sw
, wrapped in newspaper, boxed and shipped, then reintroduced to new sw
. And after all that, what is is we find attached?...inverts. Now I'm not saying that you should load your tank up with them, but I don't think adding a few peppermint shimp is going to hurt them or the tank.
