This is my first group of questions on this upcoming project. In my first post in the Intrductions forum I explained what my intentions are.
Taking the plunge
In short, I've got a 45gal tank, HOF (aquaclear500), Heater, stand, power heads, hood and light.
To avoid killing my wallet right before the holidys, I plan to only purchase a Skimmer and I'm leaning towards the AquaC Remora Pro.
My first question is regarding Live Rock. For my current Brackish setup, I purchased a rather large piece of rock from my LFS
. It was a very nice addition to the tank but it quickly turned Brown as the tank get's a bit too much sunlight in it's current location. I'd like to include this rock in my SW
setup. How should I go about cleaning this rock before adding it to my new SW
tank for the initial cycle? I'll also be adding some live rock around it.
