“Curing” is a common term used to describe a process followed to prepare marine rock for use in an aquarium. This is one topic I spent a lot of time researching before setting up my first marine aquarium. I did not appreciate the benefits of curing marine rock until going through the process first hand on a few different occasions and seeing the results. The below is a few of the things that I learned.
When it comes to marine aquariums, you have a few choices for filtration. I prefer to use live rock for many different reasons. I have been asked many times why I prefer live rock over other types of filtration, so I thought I would take some time list the pros and cons of using live rock to help other decide if they would like to us live rock in their aquarium.
