    Hi All

    Today I am finally adding my live rock to the tank. I also bought some Arag-Alive for my DSB. Can I add the live sand to the DSB at the same time as I place the live rock in? The live rock is either partially or fully cured by now.

    thanks!

    the Araga Live is simply araganite with salt water and stability so you can add it directly to you dsb. Actualy its wrong to call it live sand but hey thats what they call it

    Did you cure your rock or did you buy it cured ?

    Thanks, guys! :)

    The live rock has been partially cured. So will wait the four to six weeks and do my tests before adding any livestock.
