Well, my LR
has been curing in a 20gal with 3 maxijet 1200's, and a skimmer, for about 36 hours now. It turns out it was already cured before I got it. The rock was in shipping for 14 hours. It is 40lbs of some awesome Vanuatu LR
So today I tested the water, and the ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate were all zero. This was a little suprising to me, and I only use Salifert test kits, but I guess it was already cured, so there must not have been too much die off from shipping?? Does this sound right? Is the rock ready to go into my tank? (29gal reef, 1 year old) Im moving all my existing rock to the sump and adding the new stuff to the main tank.
Also,... the water that I used for the new LR
in the 20gal, is that still good to use for water changes and what not?
Thanks for the help. All replies are greatly appreciated!
