So when you get rock from LiveRock.com overnight, do you have to cure it or is it still cured? I just went to a local place (www.tranquilscape.com
) and bought 50lbs of cured rock today, but I need another 75-100lbs and was considering trying LiveRock since everyone raves about it so much! Also I know that certain fish eat coral so is this coraline that you are talking about like growing coral? I plan on moving my lionfish, dogface puffer and panther grouper into this tank and want to make sure it will be ok if my rock has coraline on it.
I put the rock in my empty 75gal aquarium. It's been running for about 2 weeks, had 4 damsels in there but they all 4 died on Monday within 12hrs of each other so I'm assuming I had a major spike or something. I didn't have a SW
test kit then but here are my numbers from earlier today before I added the rock PH
:8.4 Nitrite .1 Nitrate 25 Ammonia 1
How long after I finish adding all my cured rock is it safe to put my fish in? I want to move them to this tank because the 55gal tank they came in (I bought it from someone) is really nasty and slimy, the rocks are covered with algae and the gravel on the bottom looks nasty, and there is a maroonish slime on it in the corners. I just want to put these fish in the larger tank and then clean this one up really good and start something new in it.
