live rock

I jsut purchased 20 lbs of fuji live rock and I had it in a bucket to cure. The directions that came with it said it is best to keep the water at 80 degrees with the water circulating. I put my heater in set on 80 and about 4 hours later I checked it and my heater was not working properly because the water was about 100-110. Is everything dead or can I still put the rock in my tank. Thanks . Debster

It will be some very nice base rock, but most of your critters and life will be dead.

I agree that it probably caused quite a bit of die off, but it is possible that something will survive. The thing is, because of the time it takes to get here, there was very little alive on the rock when you received it, I'm not sure what effect it might have on the coraline.
