i bought live rock from an old(7yo) tank. took sand water and rocks from there so i have some good creatures crawling everywhere..
i added to the sand i took #4 aragonite gravel.
and put all the rocks on top if the sand in a 20 gal
tank...with heater and a powerhead. covered it with the water and toped with new water i mixed...
now the question is how do i add more rock to it?
1) if i get more live rock from somebody's aquarium?
2)if i get dead live rock?
3) if i make rock myself? i actually made some and waiting for it to stop leaching... dont know what to do after it stops leeching.. heres a link on my DIY Rock thread: Curing DYI rock
i am going to get some more rock soon and want to be sure i wont kill the creatures i already have... there is a small brittle star crawling in the sand and lots of worms and stuff like that in the rocks and sand i got..
i assume it will involve acclimating the rock to my tank with dripping water or something?
