I would take any animals out if You can and just do PWC's on the tank until the ph stablizes. How much rock you got in there? You might want to take out 1/2 to give it more volume of water so that lime can leach out
PS: Patiences Grasshopper, Patiences.....

You must be very young. Grasshopper was what David Carradine was called in the TV series "Kung Fu"(he was just in the movie "Kill Bill" andcommitted suicide a few weeks ago. In that case (water changes) take them out and put them back in the container as just change with freshwater as before and monitor PH.

Your imagination is the limit. My Father would say,"if someone says Why did you do that, you would answer...That's the way I wanted it"

Yes, your imagination is the limit. If you need different shapes, now is the time to make the rock.
