The answer to all is absolutely. Once cycled BR is LR
. Its LR
because of the bacteria and nothing else. People are happier if its got color and critters but its the bacteria. You'll be doing what LFS
do. It would be covered in coralline algae need lights and more time for it to grow. But it will be live rock. You could just throw BR and an uncooked unseasoned shrimp from the supermarket into a garbage can fill with saltwater and in 6-8 weeks it will have cycled and be LR
. You will need power heads to circulate the water. I did this last summer. Took empty tank filled with water from pwc
put in ph and left it in yard. Sun provide light for algae growth and br cycled in the fresh air.
