    Hi IJO,
    I don't have my tank setup yet. How long can I keep the uncured rock in the box?
    Thanks.

    From what I know it shouldn't be left to long maybe a day or 2 max. The longer in the box the more dieoff. were you thinking of buying the special and just holding it for a near future tank?

    Yeah, I was hoping to buy the special and keep it for a while until my setup is ready. That'll take more than a couple of months .. me thinks.

    IJO, Can I take a rain check? .

    If you have the rock in a rubbermaid container with a heater and a pump... you'll be fine until its fully cured... then add a 40 watt bulb from home depot($15) and you'll have as much time as you need. Sorry no rain cheque... just a real nice Christmas special

    Is the price on the live rock also tied to the purchase of an aquarium (like the $25 live goods credit) - or can I order a box of live rock @$4.99 / lb. without buying an aquarium?

    Hi, it has been awhile since I've been on this board, and my god it's has changed. Just looking at the number of users, now compared to jsut a few months ago is unreal... way to go IJO.

    Well I'm back in the flow of things now and I am interested in this deal.

    Can you explain to me why I would get this Vanuatu Rock over the conventional kind? Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere else.

    Hey Fish_Geek!!! I'm glad to see your back in the swing of things

    Reasons to go with Vanuatu Live Rock.
    1) Price: not many can match let alone beat $5/pound
    2) Life: the rock is covered in life... reds, oranges, purples
    3) Shape: each box contains flat, arches and rocks with wierd patterns and holes... everything you need to create a cool looking aquascape.
    4) You would be supporting you local online store
