So I'm about to start this process. However, I'm curious how long can the rock be out of the curing tank before it is placed into the display tank? It will be my first time building an aquascape and might dremel some holes into the rock, saw the bottom for stability etc. I don't want the cured live rock to turn into dead rock. Hope this makes sense.

Its great to see tanks mature up properly and correctly, there are so many people on FB and YT giving wrong info in relation to this. They "and well known you tubers" are literally stocking there tank within days of purchasing and wonder why 10 months down the line they have algae issues that never go away, they wonder why they become disheartened and throw in the towel.

You see it all over sites new hobbyists that have spent a fortune on high end gear trying to sell at near the same price they purchased it for, then weeks later for it to pop back up for peanuts.

What would be a good way to seed the beneficial bacteria if I don't have old tank water. I could get a rock from my local pet store but worry about hitch hikers. I also thought about off the self products that make claims about seeding but not sure how they work. Appreciate your thoughts.
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
You dont need to use anything to seed the bacteria it will happen on its own. I would stay away from live rock from the lfs you can end up with some really bad stuff.

Hey im tired of waiting for my rodi unit to make water,so im trying tap my tds is 048ppm,ammonia 0,nitrite 0 and nitrate 0.My problem is i have reef crystals and i dont know the ca and mag levels of my tap water so will this make them too high?
FishOfHex

Your tap wont have cal or mag, well at least it shouldnt. I would find a way to wait for the ro/di unit its just better overall and you bypass so many unknown issues with water.

Great video Travis and curing dry rock is a must, we were naive to how important this is when we got our dry rock ages ago and just washed it under a tap until it ran clear. After having the rock in the tank for a while I saw something starting to come out of the rock that looked like snot. Needless to say we had algae issues galore for a long time. Looking forward to more updates on your 300g build :)

What happens if you just rinse pukani rock and put it in a new tank and try to cycle it? Besides taking a bit longer. What about adding it to established tanks after rinsing and washing it but not curing it?
reef guy 92
reef guy 92 - 3 years ago
I totally disagree with that about if your can't wait to cycle your rock the long way than you won't do good in the hobby, I no alot of people who have used atm colony and dta timz an there tanks are still looking fantastic 2-3 years down the line

interested in seeing if u have the same algae issues everyone else has had with pukani.. some people acid bath.. some cure outside the tank.. some just cure it in the tank (like i did) .... ive seen mixed accounts on algae issues in all cases.. Good luck with yours .. .. It all works itself out eventually but it def is a PITA ether way lol....

I soaked my pukani for my 200 gallon tank in tap water and bleach for three weeks then I rinsed it in declorinator and put it in my tank with live sand and salt water.  My tank is four months old with 40 coral frags and 17 fish.  I have not one piece of green hair algae in my tank.  I had the diatom bloom but that lasted maybe two weeks and wasn't bad at all.  My phosphates have never been above .25 and my nitrates are always 0 - .025.  This  is my first salt water tank ever and I followed the BRS pukani cure video.
Julie Costa
Julie Costa - 3 years ago

FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
you're better off taking it out and curing it that way bc you could be looking at several months of scrubbing.
CJ'S AQUARIUMS
CJ'S AQUARIUMS - 3 years ago
good point... thats the crucial step that was missed... now will take triple the time to get rid of it all... gonna remove lights all together for awhile and continue water changes.. manual removal and run the scrubber to get rid of it... taking the harder road but will document it all..
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
Thats to long to go without doing water changes, you might of cured it within the tank for that time but bc you didnt do any water changes all those nitrates and phosphates just soaked back into the rock and now its coming out.
CJ'S AQUARIUMS
CJ'S AQUARIUMS - 3 years ago
keep in mind.. i cured it in my tank for 6-7 weeks without light or fish.. and then started doing 50% weekly water changes after that... basically the same as what your doing in the barrel with the exception of not doing the water changes right away... missed a few key steps but still will be corrected in time.. regardless
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
I have never had any issues with pukani in past builds or any of my clients. You added pukani without curing it first and then added light. That is why you have algae issues now.. no other reason.

Thanks for your quick response. I guess it wasn't a good idea to buy a little extra or different types of rock for future use. Very different than freshwater. Wash, rinse, use! LOL
Alan Falkoff
Alan Falkoff - 3 years ago
Is it a good idea to keep extra cured, cycled rock around for later use? Do all dry rocks have to be cured? Can they just be washed and added to a tank with biological solution and let cycle in a tank before starting to add livestock?
Or if using dry rock for a setup, you always have to buy it months in advance and prepare and cure it before ever using it?
I've got about 20 # sitting around. For future possible use. Suggestions on what I should do with it? Then how about storing it?
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
Unless you plan on selling the live rock i dont really see a need to keep any extra around. I personally feel all dry rock should be cured before adding it to a system, now reef saver rock tends to be very clean but i still cure for 4 weeks to build a bacteria film over the rock. If you plan on keeping live rock around you will need to run a pump or some kind of flow all the time.

FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
Im not a big fan of live rock for a couple reason. 1 they pull it out of the ocean, 2 you never know what kind of critters you might get. If you want to control everything that comes into the tank best to go with dry rock.

Yea its not something that needs to be done, but i always like to double check at the end to make sure nitrites are not show up bc that would mean you dont have enough bacteria to break down nitrites to nitrates and would be a good idea to wait a little longer.

NanoScape
NanoScape - 3 years ago
I had one of those fuzzy tanks:) 9 months down the line and I am only just starting to enjoy my little reef tank. I don't think I fully understood the whole nitrate and phosphate deal when I started and although I thought I had cured my rock (5 weeks) I didn't get the importance of actually doing water changes and testing during the process. If there's a next time .. I will be following your method to a T:)
FishOfHex

Great video bro. I used the exact same method for my tank and had great results. I cured the rock first with fresh water for 10 days to save a few pennies. 6 weeks later I started the cycling process and had great results. I never had any crazy algae and was able to get some soft corals in right away. Anyone who tries to cure their rock in their tank is in for a world of frustration. Cant wait to see next videos. Thanks for the great content.

So when you cure your rock all that stuff. You still need to cycle your tank no. So what this does is just take the dead crap off the dead rock anyways right? I am just gunna start out and I want to do a 300 g so that I won't have to go out and upgrade 7 times just doing it all at once and be set
Jesse Maksymetz
Jesse Maksymetz - 3 years ago
FishOfHex thank you !
FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
You wont need to cycle your tank if you cure rock bc part of the curing is building up the bacteria to process waste. Everything that is dead on the rock will rot and be processed by the bacteria during the curing time. Doing water changes will allow you to remove nitrates and phosphate like you would normally do during water changes in the aquarium but having the rock in a barrel like this will allow you to remove more nutrients faster and also keep light away from the rock. Light + Nutrients= algae.

I'm starting a new build and bought pukani rock. In my opinion that was a mistake. That rock is just to nasty and time consuming. I then purchased Marco rock and could not of been happier. You can put Marco right in your tank and start your cycle.

FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
if you see algae you have nutrients, the problem is your test will read zero bc the algae is sucking up the nutrients so its not going to show up on the test. if you put dry rock like pukani in without curing it. good chance that is your problem. in the end its not a losing battle but its a long one depending on the rock.

Hey fish of hex, please take your time on this one, no need to rush on my question.

Hey brother I have been working my way back into the hobby, got some dry reef saver rock from brs. 20 pounds for my 22gallon aio nano. I am going to do a small curing/ start cycling. I know my cycling has to be done but do I really need to cure this reef saver, it's not really like the live rock that I used back in the days.

Thanks fish of hex!

FishOfHex
FishOfHex - 3 years ago
This reef savor curing isnt as big of a deal but i would run the tank without lights for a few weeks allowing the bacteria to populate on the rock to cut down on any algae that might pop up.
