    Hi guys just a quick one. If I had some live rock in a black container for about two years with a couple of flow pumps and a heater will the rock still have any life in it

    yes, it could. Depends if you did feed it. Meaning, at times add a little bit of flakes or whatever. But does not matter, if at 25degrees or close to that, it will be completely cycled and perfect to use.
