Smelly Vanuatu Rock
I just purchased a new 14 gallon tank to start a mini reef in. I have two other 40 other saltwater reefs and thought it would be nice to get something to work on in a smaller scale. I purchased a Nano-Cube tank with the filtration all built in and 12 pounds (two pieces) of Vanuatu Live rock with live sand.
My question is, it has been a couple of days and the live rock still smells a lot.. I don't remember my other Fiji live rock smelling this bad and I was wondering if there is something to do to help minimize the odor. I have a pack of activated charcoal that came with the tank in there so that should help a little but it really hasn't. Is this something that I just have to wait out until the tank cycles, or is there another fix? Maybe adding another pack of charcoal?
I normally wouldn't care, but I put this tank on my desk.. so it gets a bit distracting..
Thanks so much for your help in advance!
