    Hey!

    My live rock has arrived!! The box was beat up and leaky. It smelled like a fish market, but in a good way, I think. I'm going to cure it in my WOWS tank (Water Only With Sand):D
    Should I have any concerns about rough shipping? There is a heavy duty bag in the box, but I think all is still moist inside. I guess i should brush off anything off the surface in my prepared water, before curing in the tank.

    Thanks guys!

    You got the right idea.Just brush anything thats dead off the surface of the rock,give it a good saltwater rinse,and place it in the curing tank.If there was water leaking from the box,the rock should be in pretty good shape.

    As long as the rock isn't rubble and it is wet you're good to go!
