Moving live rock?


Recommended Posts

I am moving and of course that means that my rocks are too. I was curious as to what would be the best method to keep the rock as "alive" as possible. Would damp newspaper in a bag suffice or is it best to add the extra weight and use a bucket with salt water?


Thanks for the advice!

In a perfect world, moving it in water would be the best. If you have buckets with lids, I would move it in water. If you can not, rapping it in wet news paper will work. That's how live rock is shipped to stores.

Now before you go out and start stealing your neighbors news papers or at least I do ;) . If you have buckets or a tub you can put them in that will work best but if not screw news paper and just get a clean towel and soak it in saltwater and just throw it over the rocks.

Fill 5 gallon buckets with rock (as full as possible), then add water. You wouldn't be able to add any more if you used towels or newspaper (it would just be a little lighter).
