I just ordered 45lbs of Fiji pre-cured live rock from liveaquaria.com. They recommend that the rock be re-cured. I have no livestock in my new FOWLR
tank which is just starting to cycle.
I will cure the rock in my tank, as recommended. They also recommend submerging the LR
into a bucket filled with SW
with a SG
of 1.035-1.040, for 1 minute to discharge pests, ie: mantis shrimp,bristle worms and crabs. Supposedly the pests will drop off the rock and into the bucket. You can then choose those inverts that you want to put into the tank and those that you want kept out of the tank.
QUESTION: Which "invertebrate pests" should I put into the tank.????????
Rock should be here in 1 day so I appreciate your responses soon.
Thanks - Charlie
