    LR storage

    I'm looking at picking up some LR which I won't need for a couple of months. It is cured rock from a tank which is being taken down. It has good growth on the rocks which I want to keep. My question is:

    How should I store it to preserve the life and biofilter? I assume I would need a heater and appropriate water flow 4-5x volume). Could I use a Rubbermaid tub? What would be the minimum lighting I would need? Could standard shop lights work or would I need something like a PC?

    Thanks.
    Nick

    you would need to keep the temp consistent just like a regular setup. Shop lights would be fine. A rubbermaid would work but you will need to topoff to keep the salinity stable if you want to keep everything thats on the rock alive.
