Hello, Many people do not cure the rock because we ship overnight. There will be some die off but in 99.9% of the shipments the rock has very little die off and people can add right to an established tank.

Even though this may be the case, I think it is only prudent that you cure your LR outside of an established tank, you never know what your shipment has gone through after it leaves the hands of the LR.com people. I'd hate to be on of the .01% that experiences alot of die off and then plenty of casualties because I put the rock in my established tank.

I agree w/reefrunner. I love the rock form liverocks and my last shipment I thought would be okay to add roughly 25 lbs to my already 150lbs in my tank however the amonia shot up a little higher than I like and made me very nervous so I removed the rock to a seperate curing bin for a couple days. Better safe than sorry IMO

I used the LR from www.liverocks.com to cycle my new tank, and it was a small cycle at that. Haven't heard a bad review about these guys yet, and you won't hear one from me.
