Is it OK to mix LR form Carribean/Fiji/Lalo and such? Will the organisms that live on each get along? I would like to have a mixture of the different shapes and textures if possible
Should be ok to do this as I have never heard anyone saying they had problems with it. But then again, I am not sure I have every actually read about anyone doing it.
I know one would normally cyle a tank with uncured LR, but if I get cured and try to cycle with that, wont it still work eventually. I know I will have a big die off, but will everything return to normal after time. as well as it taking longer to cycle.
If you have real cured LR
and you immediately put that into the tank then, theoretically, there would be no cycle because it has already occurred - hence the cured LR
. This means that you could start stocking immediately.
I have actually never purchased cured LR
so I have never tried this. All my LR
was always purchased on-line and had to go back through the curing stage.
