Dried coral.

Hey ok, so I still have a few weeks before my tank will be ready for anything but LR, I really want to know if I could put in some dried coral in there for decoration.. I found a website that I really liked that sells them, I also will put live coral in once everything is going well with the water and temp and everything, will that be ok?

I think he means dead coral skeletons. As long as they were not treated with any chemicals/medications, etc then you should be fine. Might be wise to still soak them in fw for a week just to be safe.

I agree with James. You could use it but as James said soak it for awhile.

I have a lot in my tank. You have to clean it though (best to use RODI water).
