If u divide the water if u can that is Into 2 amd only have 2 totes or wjatever u use. This will help bc when u have more of substance at the same temp it takes lomger for it to change. But ur live rock when ive bought some the lfs
just wrapped it in wet newspaper. And your coral most can live out of water for up to 6 hrs bc in the ocean theres low and high tide. Inverts,fish,and anemones keep in water of course. Amd if u think ur not rdyfor coral then take them to lfs
most of the time they will do some trading with u. other than that when the day comes remember to pace yourself, becareful, and finish no matter what. Also stay calm when alot is goimg on it gets overwhelming and things start to go wrong.. Hope this helps
Cool, thanks for the input. Good tip on the lfs
trade. I wouldn't have thought of that. I will check with mine to see what they do, but I think I am going to give a try. Any thoughts on rearranging rock formation after everything settles in? I think I wanna try a different arrangement than is shown in the picture, but I'm not sure if it is safe to move things around after everything is set up.
