    storing live rock


    im not so much a newbie but couldnt think of where else to post this.

    wondering if anyone has experience storing live rock until a tank is ready to go. i will not be setting up my new tank until the middle of september but there is an awesome deal on LR at the moment from a fellow reefer.

    is there any possible way to store this and keep it alive?

    thanks, matt

    Head to Walmart and pick up some rubbermaid tubs (el cheapo!). A powerhead for circulation and a shop light and you are good to go. Won't break the bank either
