how long does live rock stay "live" when getting delivered for example... my 30lb of rock got shipped out from florida on Dec. 31st and will probablt get here on monday the 5th. What are the chances that it will get here in good conditions still?? Will it dry up over this time? Also, i live in South Dakota and its damned cold here so what are the chances i will get this order and all the rock will be dead?

Thanks

The rock will have some die off, but will be fine with time. I had some live rock in a tub of water with no heater no powerhead, and it smelled nasty. It came back to life, you should be ok.
