More fiji rock on the way today

Ok guys so I have 30 more pounds of Fiji rock coming today including the Emp Angel. Do I need to quarentine the rock even if it's cured already? Probably since there was die off during shipment. Or would a good scrub and shake around fresh saltwater due since it's cured already?

Steve

Well i know that on most sites they say that even though the rock is cured already, it is best to cure it again and see if any die-off occurs. At the very least scrub it down and rinse it with saltwater.

So if I decide to quarentine I'll use a 20 gallon rubbermaid container, fill it with saltwater, use a pump to move water and leave the rock in for about a week or two? How long should I let it cure?

You should be good when your ammonia and nitrites are 0. To help it along, put a cured rock and or substrate from your DT in with the new rock this should help speed up the process. It's almost the same process as cycling your tank.

Oh yeah I've ordered three times from this person on Ebay. Wonderful transactions I've had with them. It's actually from two different people but they're both wonderful.

I got 100 pounds of live rock for $200 with shipping just about a month ago. Rock came in the mail wonderful package job, already (supposedly cured) and now it's going on a month I've had my live rock and it's doing just fabulous. That rock would've costed me probably at least $500 at my LFS, I probably saved over $400 and the Fiji rock I have here is just as good if not BETTER then my LFS.

And now I have 30 pounds coming today from Ebay again, here are links to the pages I bought rock from:

Fiji Live Rock - Premium Grade By the Pound - eBay (item 200366605604 end time Aug-23-09 17:03:35 PDT)

50lbs of Walt Smith Live Rock - eBay (item 180369090243 end time Jul-27-09 17:13:13 PDT)

Steve

The live rock is here, I have it in a 10 gallon rubbermaid container with fresh saltwater with a power head going. How often do I need to check the water?
