I hate to say this but im having a very hard time following what your asking with all the typos.

About all I get is that you plan on ordering more rock tonight and adding that rock to your tank when it comes.

This will cause another ammonia spike and thus another cycle period just like you expereenced with your first batch of live rock.

ok sorry buddy :) okay my first batch of rock was when i boguht the tank a week ago i bought the 16 lbs and the 17lbs form mlfs it was basicly fully cured no amonia spike yet so i put the other rock in today which i got form live aquari which i belive isnt fully cureddddd..... now what do i do .... levae the light on 12 hours off 12 hrs change the water etc etc

i also have another shippment of rock comibng within the next few days

There is an article in the articles section >>"Curing LiveRock...I didn't even know it was sick!"<<, if this were my rock, I would follow the directions in the article and cure the new rock in a seperate container.

tank u so i gueess i should not use light #1 and #2 i have notihng alive in my tank therefor im using my tank as vessel :) now what?

I did this and am doing just as the article says... water changes every other day and no light. I rinsed mine again last night too to try an get some more dead stuff off.

If I do it again, it will not be in the tank. A tub will cost me less water and salt :)

i should use a tooth bursh to clean each pice? what if theres stuff on the outside thaT i want ? how do i know if i want it?

ellisz 10-21-2003 11:39 PM

This is something I wondered about too. From my post, I read if it is slimy then you don't want it. I tried to remove obvious stuff but if it was slimy, I did my best to get it off. I did not go crazy though because I was not really sure either.

Hopefully someone will give you a better answer but HTH.
