live rock in wet/dry

I have read about using live rock in wet/dry filters. Do you use live rubble as you would bioballs? I know you trickle the water over bioballs. Do you do the same over live rubble, or is there something different?

The lr rubble has to be completely submerged.

Good luck! Kat

Keep it completely covered. I have a pic in my gallery of my sump with the LR rubble in it if you are interested.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

if the lr is not always submerged the nitrifying bacteria will die off and give no biological filtration.
