1. If you have an exsisting tank that you are adding the rock to, yes, you can remove them by doing a hypo salinity dip. This will cause them to "jump ship" and then you can pick and chose which you want and dont want.
2. It depends on your definition of coral. If you are referring to "micro" coral (for lack of a better phrase) such as sponges, small feather dusters, and the assorted "micro" world that will eventually develop.....I would say your looking at 6 months to really start noticing growth. It is really an exponential situaion. One turns into two...turns into four and so on.
3. No...just put them in a rubber maid tub, limited light (3-4hrs a day) with a heater and a power head. Monitor the parameters and do water changes accordingly to help any remaining "critters" survive the cycle.
