    I'm obviously missing an inside joke here, but extreme, you do know that's not what's meant by cooking live rock, don't you?

    ok ok ok, yes, this is the -R cooking method, I've got a tank that I setup a while back for sea horses, It completed all it's cycles think about 8 months old now, then started to read up about seahorses, well my flow is 100% my temp stays at 25-26c lightning 1x 24W cl blue/white and live olite sand, tank is / water level at 50cm and L46 x 46W with a in tank sump, running like a dream, then there is a few goggas that I don't want and a crab that I can not catch, the nice pieces of LR went to wifes tank and I took some other LR and that's why I cook it, going to seed again with fiji rock and get the Caroline back with some pods.

    It is now in a tank with fresh mixed salt water with a 1000L/H pump and dosed MB7, will let it spike again.

    Now I know what gogas will there bee and not unwanted stuff
