Recommended Posts

im trying to add just a little bit more rock to my jar. i've read that buying live rock and doing a quick RO dip would get rid of the hitchhikers... i previously did this (with live rock) at the beginning of my cycle, however my tank was NOT cycled at the time. i have 3 corals in the jar at the moment, which i plan to remove along with the already in jar rock...and i am going to re aqua-scape/glass clean so i figured this would be a good time to add a few little rocks..? thoughts? Will i be ok adding a little more rock to the jar with live rock? any advice helps thanks

I always recommend curing any new rock (live or dry) in a separate container before adding it to a tank with livestock.  This way you don't risk an ammonia spike.  A 5 gallon bucket with a small powerhead, or air stone, would suffice.
