Hey guys and gals! So yesterday I went out and bought 16 lbs of Pukani live rock from my local reef store. I know I bought more than I needed but I was cut a deal on the rock for being a loyal customer and I have another tank I can use the extra in. Now the rock will be going in a brand new nano 20 gallon tank (the thread for the new tank will be coming soon with pictures so don't worry ;D) but I want to make sure I try and get out as much dead organics from it as possible so not as much phosphates aren't leached into my system causing a spike. Basically I want the rock as clean, ready, and leached out as much as possible before going into my tank. I'm taking this one super slow and having as much patience as possible so I'm not too concerned about time. Now I read a thread on here that mentioned spraying off the rock with regular water, scrubbing it possibly, and then letting it sit outside in the sun to dry for about a week or so, is it necessary to do this step? Yesterday I did a 5 gallon WC on my other 20 gallon tank and used that water to put into the bucket that the pukani live rock is in. I have a heater in there and a powerhead going. Should I backtrack and and maybe take that rock out and then spray it off with regular water and let it sit outside or just keep going with what I am doing? I'm going to do water changes on the bucket at least once a week as well as add microbacter7 to hopefully help the process and I'm willing to do this about 6-8 weeks till it is done leaching. If I missed anything or if anyone has any other suggestions please feel free to advise me.
