Hey all ive been preparing to go bare bottom now all thats left is cooking the rock what i did before i decided to go barebottom was to just take out my rock and let it dry out and start over. Now i have some dried out rock and decided to cook it with some live rock. Will it seed while cooking? Also just out of curiousity why am i not allowed to dunk the live rock in fresh water if its only going to be for a sec.

Putting live rock in with your now dead live rock will help cooking by adding the bacteria you need back in a larger population.

You can't dunk it in fresh water because you will kill allot of the bacteria you rely on for your cooking, although it would not prevent cooking from working, it would make the process take allot longer.

HTH,
