    Live Rock Update

    I just wanted to update everyone on the live rock I order from Ivan. I order 100lbs and it arrived on Dec 15. The rock has been curing in a 50GAL rubbermaid container with powerheads, a heater and a skimmer since then. I tested for nitrates last night, which are between 0.2 and 0.5 ppm with a Salifert test kit. For the last week the skimmer has not been pulling out much so I feel the rock must be cured.

    Here is a pic of all 100lbs in the 50GAL container.

    There were not many small pieces, most are in the medium range.

    These are typical small pieces.

    Here are typical medium pieces. The paint stick in the picture is 12 inches for scale.

    This is the largest piece. It is hard to tell how thick it is in the picture but I would say around 8 inches.
