    I'm starting a new aquarium and I want to make it a reef tank. It's 30 gallons, and it has a couple pieces of dry rock that I'm trying to cure. 1. How much rock should I have in the tank? 2. Will adding cured rock facilitate the curing process?

    So... I'm still in the process of building my tank, it's taking longer then expected with some extra bills popping up. I had a question about curing some rocks. I'm still in the process of building and setting up my sump/refug and plumbing for it, is it necessary for me to get that all set up...
