Live Rock SCORE!

I just got some FREE Live Rock... 25 lbs.

Getting it tonight.

The guy has it in the water still. When I go get it are there any tips? Can I leave it in the tubs for a day or so? I have a couple of pumps & heatersI can use.

Thanks for any advice

I'd give them a heater and a pump just to keep things from dying if you aren't putting it straight into your tank to cycle.

Get a 5 gallon bucket and dump in a heater and pump if you can.

Thanks Guys... I think i will try to get it all in the tank tomorrow, only because, I don't think I will have time tonight, after picking it up.

just wanted to confirm the heater & pump, so thanks for confirming

Yep, just starting. Tank is set up. Rock in a tub with water, and a heater.

No, no pics yet.
Kinda got too much sand in & had to take some out, caused a sandstorm & couldn't even see the rock to aquascape.
Everything is in, just waiting for it to clear so I can get it looking good & put the rest of the sand back in.
Oh well, even the best laid plans....

Was wanting just a little sand, then the rock & more sand around it. Was trying to avoid the sand bed getting to deep under the rocks, since I am planning a goby.

Hoping it clears this weekend, kinda worried the rock is not getting enough light.

I have the filter on & the power head off.
