I would be surprised it is still alive. No expert but from what I have read here, I was a fool for paying for "Live Sand" that came in a sealed bag and was recommended by the LFS
. The live rock you add will seed the sand and return it to a live state while the tank cycles and over the first couple of months. Washing the sand makes sure you get rid of all the nasty stuff that may mess with your tank in the future. (I am really getting good are repeating all the stuff the experts say.
To bad I didn't check with them before I wasted all that money).
