I just got a shipment of Base rock from HIRocks and am very happy with the quality of the rocks. Sure beats the $5.99 a lb I paid in the lps for my other rock. I now need to know how go about seeding this rock..... How would one do that..... I have 40lbs of Figi LR in another tank but dont want to disrupt any of that.... is there another way of going about it, and how long would it take?

what is your final plan for the base rock? is it going into another bigger tank?

i would think that the base rock is pretty inert. i do not think you would get any ill effects like you would from uncured LR. i would think after a quick rinse you could put it in your tank, if this was the reason to get it.

if you are putting it into another tank then i would just hold onto it until you get it set up. then remove as much of the LR from the other tank, up to about half, i would not go over half. you still need the filtering properties in the old tank. then as the tank cycles the base rock will become more live.
