Well we are going on Wednesday, and I haven't even heard anything yet. This is not was they advertise on thier website. So, needless to say, I'm already disappointed. I didn't expect them to be sent on Friday, but I did expect them to be sent on Monday. Did you read the original post. The person who posted this thread said that his rocks were in transit for like 5 days because they weren't mailed until Thursday. So now I'm worried that is going to happen to me because they haven't even tried to send them yet.

Well then dont ever buy from them.. Or, send it back when you get it. Your the customer, and the customer is always right. Not to mention that live rock is expensive, so just send it back and demand a refund and never buy from them again. Problem Solved.

Sorry njones that I didnt get back sooner, I've been on vacation. Trust me, I know what its like to be anxiously waiting to hear from someone. Well I have to say that the rock did look surprisingly pretty good when it arrived. I was somewhat impressed with the color variations but there wasnt any coraline growth yet. The rock is now in the tank and cycling is underway. The dude from the place did finally call and reply to my emails and assured me that the rock would be fine. My order was in transit for 6 days and seems to be performing OK.

Ok, question then about the brown stuff dying off thr rock - do I need to clean it out? I called the store where I bought the tank and they said it would be fine, it was just part of the process of curing out.

You should lightly brush and swish it under saltwater to knock off most of that brown and anyother dead stuff on the rock.

Ok, thanks! So the dead stuff laying on top of the sand is alright though?

How much dead stuff is on your sand? I would syphon most of it out.
What are you using for an Ammonia source?

No clue! lol We've only had the tank a couple of weeks so no fish yet. It's just saltwater, live rock and a filter right now. There isn't a lot of it the brown stuff just some patches of it around the edge by the glass. It's only a 46 gal tank.
