liverocks.com shipment

Long story short...I got my shipment yesterday. DHL shipping was very late. It was scheduled for an a.m. delivery and it did not show up until 6:30 pm! Morons. So the rock looked good. there were a few dead crabs in there but a couple live ones as well. I had relatives coming last night so did not have time to put the rock in the tank. I threw it in a rubbermaid tube of SW that I was aging for a water change. I work 24 hour shifts so will not be home until tomorrow morning to mess with the rock. Will more die-off occur on the rock in the SW I prepaired? the info that Mike sent with the rocks said to NOT re-cure the rock. Do you think I am good to place it in my display tomorrow? thanks! Lando

you got some powerheads running in the rubbermaid container right? if not put a few in there. the waterflow is important to the live rock

Yah, I was actually aging the water to do a water change so it worked out nice. I have a PH, heater, and airstone in there.

It'll probably be fine.. just test the levels in the container before you add the rock and if there's been significant die-off then you can always let it cure for a few days.

I think your rock will be fine, and the fresh saltwater with circulation should help remove the minimal die off that may have occurred.
