Live Rock from local waterfront?

Recommended Posts

sneeqie

Hello all, new here.

 

I looked around and couldn't find a definitive answer on the forums so far (maybe I overlooked something, forgive me in advance) but I was wondering if I were to take a few rocks from the local waterfront what I would need to do in order to clean them/disinfect them before using them in my own tank?

 

I say clean/disinfect because I imagine without looking it wouldn't be wise to just take a piece of live rock out of nature and put it directly into my tank.

 

PS - Forgive me as well if this isn't proper etiquette in the hobby world, I am still new and haven't had much time to research as much as I would like. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday season thus far!

I wouldn't use rock from the waterfront. Too much exposure to pollutants amongst other things.

 

 

Buying quality liverock or dry rock is the best option.

 

What kind of rock are we discussing anyway? Do you know what type of rock it is?
