View Full Version : Changing out Rock

I already have an established tank but would like to redo my rock work. I would like to get your rock but am not sure whether or not this will cause my tank to cycle. What would be the best way to transfer over to your rock?

Adding our rock to an existing tank will not cause a cycle in itself. But stirring up sediment by moving the existing rock can cause a release of trapped nitrates and or phosphates. Covering up too much life on existing live rock can cause a spike in ammonia. But one good point, our rock developes bacteria very fast. Usually the bacteria colonization in our rock will out-pace the ammonia build-up. We have lots of customers that do exactly what your doing, and have had no reported problems. Our rock does not need to be cured. You can put it in your tank straight out of the box.
