I hate to say this but im having a very hard time following what your asking with all the typos.

About all I get is that you plan on ordering more rock tonight and adding that rock to your tank when it comes.

This will cause another ammonia spike and thus another cycle period just like you expereenced with your first batch of live rock.

There is an article in the articles section >>"Curing LiveRock...I didn't even know it was sick!"<<, if this were my rock, I would follow the directions in the article and cure the new rock in a seperate container.

I did this and am doing just as the article says... water changes every other day and no light. I rinsed mine again last night too to try an get some more dead stuff off.

If I do it again, it will not be in the tank. A tub will cost me less water and salt

This is something I wondered about too. From my post, I read if it is slimy then you don't want it. I tried to remove obvious stuff but if it was slimy, I did my best to get it off. I did not go crazy though because I was not really sure either.

Hopefully someone will give you a better answer but HTH.
