 Yeah  spongebob,
 If  you  acid  wash  a  dead  coral  -  the  organic  waste  deposited  on  and  inside  the  skeleton  will  be  flushed  out  as  coral  skeleton  is  made  of  calcium  and  as  soon  as  it  comes  in  contact  with  acid  it  will  dissolve  so  the  skeleton  will  be  bleached  and  all  the  waste  trapped  inside  will  be  flushed  out  -  Yes  the  acid  wash  will  stink  but  not  for  long!  (better  to  finish  it  off  once  and  for  all!)

 Hi  guys,
 
 In  our  industry  live  rock  generally  means  the  dead  coral  exosketeton  mostly  the  larger  size.  Technically  its  any  solid  substance  having  complex  biological  associations.  like  algae,  molluscs,  sponges  etc.  If  your  live  rock  is  made  of  coral  'carcass'  you  have  an  advantage  of  having  lots  of  available  area  both  outside  and  inside,  where  the  macro  and  micro  organisms  assembles.  the  inner  minute  pores  of  corals  get  occupied  with  the  bacteria  associated  with  biofiltration  and  is  helpful  in  maintaining  your  tank  health  so  making  lesser  water  changes.  Always  make  sure  to  keep  the  optimum  level  of  rock  to  your  tank  as  they  require  much  more  oxygen  that  you  can  imagine.  In  case  of  power  failure  or  o2  depletion  you  may  get  all  your  tank  cleaned  up!!!!!!
 so  be  careful  with  the  rocks.

 Agreed,  but  the  problem  here  is  that  the  dead  coral  skeleton  is  kept  dry  for  a  looooong  time  and  it  will  definately  not  have  any  complex  bio-associations  with  any  sponges  or  algae  or  even  anoxic/oxic  bacteria  !

 well  any  aerobic  bacterial  coloney  will  need  O²  for  survival!  It  can  be  a  disaster  even  if  your  trikle  or  wet-dry  filter  stops  working!  so  it  is  not  the  rocks  to  be  alarmed  of!

 [Which  industry?]
 Its  just  like  that,,,  spinning  7-15  billion  dollars  per  annum
 [/Agreed,  but  the  problem  here  is  that  the  dead  coral  skeleton  is  kept  dry  for  a  looooong  time  and  it  will  definately  not  have  any  complex  bio-associations  with  any  sponges  or  algae  or  even  anoxic/oxic  bacteria  !]
 sorry!  
 i  was  thinking  it  was  really  a  liverock  not  just  rock  skeleton.
 
 The  best  liverocks  are  those  which  have  both  plant  and  animal  growth  on  it.  The  calcarious  algae  like  halimeda  are  hardy  and  beautiful  whether  live  of  dead.  You  can  have  a  look  at  it  intheir  natural  habitats  especially  in  the  lagoons  of  lakshadweep
