    Hi
    I have a combition of live rock and dead rock. My question is will the living organism s spread over to the dead rock and coral. And could Zoas and Mushrooms attach themselfd to any surface?

    Things such as pods, bristle worms etc will move to the dead rock... Mushrooms and zoas will normally attach to rocks, plastic

    If the dead rock is porous then yes, after a few months it will eventually contain nitryfying bacteria and become live rock.
