    Hi everyone

    If you are starting off a marine tank and adding already cured live rock is it necessary to add it to slowly? or can you add all the cured live rock to the tank at once? Most of the articles I've read mostly speak about uncured live rock so I was just wondering.

    thanks!

    If the temp and salinity is right you can add all at once, no problem. Then still wait a couple of weeks before adding live stock after the water tests right.
