My general rule of thumb is cheap rock is good rock. There isn't anything that you can't do to avoid issues simply by drying it out and scrubbing it until your fingers bleed. You want to scrub it to get any gunk out of even the best rock coming out of someone's tank. At that price, bring it home...bring it all home.

Any disadvantage to getting rock from a severely overstocked tank?

Increased amount of gunk in it? Easily scrubbed out.

Just scrub it in a bucket of sw? For photo period, 7 hours of daylights with the actinic running the entire time than a few hours after daylight goes off? Should I only run act for certain period?

With my lights I have it ramp from about a 20k color for about an hour or two into a more daylight 14k color temp for about 8 hours and then back down to actinic for 2 hours then lights off for 12.

PPs- I don't want to hear a word about the yellow trim, painting is my arch nemesis and I'll get around to when I'm not busy doing stuff I don't hate..

Like painting! Painting is fun! I'm getting ready to paint the outside of a little house very soon. Just got done with 2 interiors.

No "shocking" info on the install??? Looks great!

I did so many new plugs! No electrocutions! I went to the nice nice lfs in quincy ma and the sw prices made me cringe and leave. After the shaking subsided I realized not all sw life costs a fortune??? $50/frag.. I probably should never go there again huh?
