    Moving

    Hi all!
    I just moved and i threw all the sand(aragonite) out as i had lots of problems with hair algae.Now i put in 60lbs. of aragonite.Could i just add back my live rock and fish in it safely?My live rock is about 8 month ols and has for sure cycled.I'm also gonna put in 10lbs. of old aragonite to kick start things.

    That's my job today!

    Any advice?

    Thanks to all in advance

    If your rock stayed submerged in water durring the move there should be no problem, if it got dry it will most likely cycle again.

    There shouldn't be any problems doing what your going to do unless the aragonite was the stuff that in a bag of salt water. That stuff need to be cured again I think. Supposed to be beneiful to your aquarium but as far as I know you need to cure the sand again after adding it. But if it's dry aragonite in a bag I wouldn't worry about it. I don't even know if thats the stuff but I thought I seen aragonite in bags full of salt water already seeded. I would guess being in a bag of sand and water for so long that it all would die off. Just a thought.
    Cheers,
