    So, I'm ready to set up my 90 gallon for the cycling process, and I have a question about the rock I want to use in it. I have a 40 gallon tub filled with base rock.

    I have 90 lbs of base rock. All of it was at one point in a marine tank within the last year, but about 60 lbs of it has been in a FW Cichlid tank for 6 months. I removed it set it outside to dry. All the algae is gone and it "looks " just like it did when I bought it last year. I am starting a...

    So, after 1 1/2 years including a tank upgrade my rock is infested with hydroids. I have the digitate, colonial, and the kind that look like little trees growing from the rock. My corals are all dying a slow death and my fish are getting stung like crazy. I'm surrendering because between the...

    Here's the deal. My 40 gallon is about a year old and has about 25 lbs of live rock. I just ordered 25 more pounds of dry rock from marco rocks for aesthetic reasons.
