I am getting some live rock from a friend that abandon his tank. It has been sitting in saltwater without heat, probably been around room temp for months with no light or water flow on it. Will this rock still have benifical bacteria alive in it? Will I need to go through the curing process?
Thanks, by looking at the rock it appears to have some life on it. I put it in a new trash can with some established live rock, fresh saltwater, a large powerhead and a heater. Alls I need now is to add a skimmer. I will let it cure for a couple of months. I am in no hurry.
