Live rock dipped in fw= dead rock IMHO
Why is this? LR
submerged in FW
for hours maybe but FW
dips are used in many different ways. I have zoos that have survived 10+ minutes in FW
. Some people think corals exposed to air will die as well. This is not the case for most.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying a FW
dip is needed here but they can be used with no ill effects. Nuisance crabs and critters are a pain to get out later.
Definitives in this hobby are rare, IMO
