LR?

A friend of mine brought me about 20lbs of LR. He basically took it out of his tank and drove it over here. I guess it was out of water for about 20 or so minutes, in a rubbermaid w/o a lid. It has some pretty extensive growth on it. Is this rock gowing to go through a cycle? How long should i wait before adding anything into the tank. It's a 20g that is basically a transplant of my larger tank...a good bit of the DSB and water came directly from my tank.

I'd say a tiny cycle at most. You may just want to watch your levels for a few days to make sure everything is stable before adding anything to the tank, but I wouldn't expect any big cycle like with uncured LR.

That's a good friend to have! :beer:

As "QuAcKeR" Stated; You shouldn't go through much of a cycle because it came from a established tank. Of course if your friend's tank had a hair algae or some other problem's you could inherit them as well!
