You need Sw to cure your LR. Check out our Sw articles. We have an excellent article on curing LR.

See neither of u know what I'm talking about... I'm not curing LIVE ROCK I'm leeching fresh AC... So I probably can use freshwater as all your doing is leeching lime and other chems out from the cement and throwing your water everyday... So I still have no answer

What I'm saying is this rock is not yet live and has trace chemicals that will nuke your tank ... Salt water would cost too much to throw out 30+ gallons a day

ask Greenmaster on here, he made his own rock and was/is dealing with what you are referring too

i wouldnt really consider making rock out of concrete aquaculturing, so thats why i didnt know what you were talking about

Why did you say you were cureing the rock then get mad when someone tells you the right answer. why would you risk putting rock that you need to leach chemicals out of in your tank thats just stupid base rock is like 1.50 a pound just buy it and save yourself the drama

I never said anything about putting ac rock in my tank all I said was u can't... Now once it's leached ( 1mnth ) then I can put it in my tank to cure it and turn it live
