The advantage to live rock to a saltwater aquarium is that it contains bacteria and invertebrates that can help clean the aquarium water. Yet, just as there are good and bad bacteria in the human body, all of the animal life, no matter how small, is beneficial to the rest of your aquarium life. To combat this problem, live rock is cured, so that the bad elements of the live rock are eliminated and the beneficial elements remain.
What makes live rock “live” is not the rock itself. In fact, live rock is often dead coral that has broken off and fallen to the sea floor. A wide variety of creatures then take house in the porous dead coral. At Coral Reef Farm, you can rest easy knowing that you’ll be the getting the safest, and most colorful, cured live rock available.
There’s also the issue of the smell of live rock. If the live rock has been out of the ocean for an extended period, many of the inhabitants will die off, leaving a not-so-pleasant smell. Curing the live rock eliminates this smell by washing away those dead creatures that are giving off the bad smell, as well as reviving those creatures that are lying dormant.
