dry rock isn't live,its usually called base rock. live rock is populated with creatures and nullifying bacteria

+1 Agree dry rock is just base rock as mention. Once you established your systems cycle it will create the Neutrafying bacteria. As in my case I need to cycle it first before putting it in my system which would take a few weeks. Hopefully less if I add a Piece of LR in it to seed.

Alright took some reading for cycling today almost 24hrs and it is amazing how much dead waste is on these rock.

Ammonia 4.0PPM
Nitrate 40PPM
Nitrite 5.0PPM

So just in case anyone is wanting to buy any DRY LR from BRS you will have to cycle it and Cure it for sure.
