    so this is the lr that i will be getting next weekend. Fiji Live Rock...1 Box/44lbs

    info says that it's already cured in fiji, then cured again at the lfs. Will the rock need to be cleaned before it goes into my tank for curing for the third time? And if so how do i go about the cleaning process.

    I wouldnt, it should be just fine. Just make sure you keep the LR in SW. If it stays out for too long, thats when you will have a mini cycle on your hands.

    I usually quarantine my LR in hypersalinity water in case there are any pests. I drove out a baby mantis in one of my Dr. Foster/Smith batches. I was able to sell him to my LFS for $10.
