Live rock

Have several pounds of lr rubble I'm going to use instead of bio balls tonight. I got the lr a few weeks ago when I bought it I brought it home in a bag covered n wet newspaper. I put it in a 5 gal bucket with some tank water from a pwc with a htr, and powerhead. I'm going to look the rock over really good before putting in wet/dry sump tonight. My question is: can hitchhikers, or aiptasia enter my dt from water being pumped back into tank from trickling over lr in sump? Thanks
Kevin

Would I be able to see the aiptasia on the lr before placing it into sump ?

Not out of water. It retracts when not in SW feeling comfortable.

Look your bucket over very well, but for the most part it is a risk that you will have to take
