Hey peeps, i been researching for the last 3 months and still researching... I'll be setup a curing live rock tank in the basement no life what's so ever and want to do the curing ahead. I'll just be curing and once done, transfer the live rock to the establish aquarium. My questions is should I use filtration curing processes? Pretty much just jumping starting the processes and create life in the rocks for a couple of months. let me know any suggestion and advice

No filtration needed however you should still be doing water changes weekly will it cures. Or biweekly, whatever your choice is.

alright no problem I'll be taking a note of that ... and I'll be keeping it away from sun light as well ... so algae won't be introduced in the curing tank .... I'll be also setting RO/ID in the basement as well ... thank you for you advice peeps
