Getting live rock from the ocean.

I live in fla. I wanna get some more live rock from the ocean this weekend. All my rocks are from the ocean here. Anything I should do to add more LR to the tank. Should I bake it. I have a fish only tank. Any advise would be great.

Good question, im excited to see what everyone says. Is this rock being added to an already cycled tank? Wouldn't baking it turn it into dry rock?

Yeah tank has fish and is fully cycled. Yeah I figured baking it would kill everything. But the good stuff from my other LR would settle in all in good time.

You have to "cure" it if you are adding it to an already established tank

Are you suppose to be messing around with wildlife? In my area, it is illegal to disturb any wildlife or take anything out of the ocean. Ask the wildlife ranger who patrols the coast.

I dont think it's legal. But.... If ya just did it fast enuff so the stuff on the rock didn't die I dont think it would mess things up to bad. Cooking the rock would just kill everything on the rock. When you put it in your tank the dead stuff you couldnt get off would rot and cause problems.

It is legal to take any rock not submerged in water. There is a place I fish. Its super rocky. At low tide there are thousands of rocks out of the water. Game and fish guy said its not a problem as long as you are not commercially harvesting them.
