There's no need for an air stone or anything like that. The powerhead will break up the surface tention of the water an will provde oxygen in the water, though the rocks don't particularly care. Its the bacteria on the rocks that makes them "live". You're fine the way you are, just keep checking the water parameters and soon your rocks will be ready to go in the DT

You need to put that rock in the tank. it will cycle and HELP your tank cycle too. It will have die off which will produce ammonia. You need that in your other tank. Unless you still have fish in it. Then I'm not so sure how to proceed. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
