Ace, my understanding of live rock is that you don't have to clean/replace it.

Lando? In a sump, what maintenance on live rock rubble?

I remove my LR rubble twice a year so I can clean out my sump. That is it.

Do you remove it and put the same rubble back or put in new rubble?

(We need it spelled out here... well, I do anyway!)

Same rubble. I just put my rubble in a bucket of SW taken from the tank at water change time. I then rinse out the sump with FW and put everything back together and replace the lost water volume with aged and airated SW.

lando correct me if i'm wrong...

sdellin, lando pulls out the LR rubble just so she can remove settled detritus and waste from the bottom of her sump to keep it from building up. The removal of the rubble is really just a convience factor to make the cleaning of the sump easier.

that correct lando?
