Not sure. But kahit na cured rock na sya I would suggest that you still cure it yourself para sure.

Oh, is that what it's called? My tank was setup at marine aquaria in Metrowalk kasi and instead of the real thing, they put synthetic/artificial live rocks. When I setup my tank kasi, I didn't research first and I'm sure I'll be scolded by a lot of you here. I depended on the advice, tips and instructions that the manongs gave me at the store. Hence, my fishes were almost wiped out. Now I know better and have been reading and researching so that I wouldn't make the same mistakes again.

Yeah those are artificial corals. And despite being artificial, you still need to cure those and cycle your tank before putting any livestocks.

Research research! hehe

Super... I got them for PhP 300.00 a piece. But I must admit, they do look much better than the real thing. :)

@shandy_say - Thanks for the info. That's why I'm here... Wanna learn more and more and what better way to learn than to be taught by the gurus right?

Anyway, thanks again.
