Curing New Live Rock

OK, I am about ready to order some Keys Rock from Liverocks.com. What is the best way to cure it? Thanks!

That seems to be the agreed upon way most people do it, with a few variations.

Being in Florida you should recieve it so quickly that it probably won't need curing! I have seen others on this board that have ordered from across the U.S. and were surprised to see no Die off at all!

Debary ... where exactly is that?

That would be nice to get it, and place it right into the tank! DeBary is in Volusia County. We are basically directly between Daytona and Orlando, off of Interstate 4.

ahhh o.k.!
Kinda far, but I was going to say why not make a road trip out of it! That way you can pick your rock first hand?

Thanks for the link to that page, Nate. That seems like a good idea. I will get a Rubbermaid tub to have on hand.

They have recently moved...

Their new warehouse is in Tarpon Springs.

If you take 4 to 75 go north, then get off on highway 54? then take that west. Once you get to Alt 19 you will take a left. Get to Kingermon Rd, and take a Right, then a left on Alt 19.

They are in a warehouse complex that has a sign Vertical plus or something in there. They just got a new shipment in Sunday from the Keys ( I was help put the rock in their tubs, while picking out pieces to buy.)

I would suggest contacting them if you plan on making it to make sure you have someon there.

Even if shipped overnight, liverocks.com does not recommend re-curing their rock. Should be able to go right in the main. The choice is yours, however. When I got mine, I put in a rubbermaid tub for a couple of days to monitor NH3. I had no trouble and put in into the main. Again, no trouble.

I just figured if they are @1-1.5 hours away to save some costs... go grab them, plus they have the ability to pick out some nice pieces :P

even with the FL resident reduced shipping its still @ 30-40bucks for 40lbs not bad though

We were there Sunday, and I would do it all over again, I'm very happy with the pieces especially the rock that looks like a baseball glove
