 hi  all,
 
 i  have  a  boyu  imported  saltwater  128  litre  (33  gallon)  marine  tank
 
 i  had  two  triggers  that  were  doing  very  well  and  the  tank  water  was  crystal  clear
 
 of  late  i  added  20  kgs  of  live  rock  directly  in  the  tank  with  green  algae
 
 slowly  the  fishes  developed  white  patches  on  their  body  and  one  by  one  all  of  them  died
 
 is  it  something  to  do  because  of  the  live  rock  addition  or  it  is  because  of  something  else?
 
 does  live  rock  added  to  tank  increase  ammonia  levels?
 
 waiting  for  reply
 VJ

 Usually  in  transportation  and  storage  at  LFS  etc  most  of  the  bacteria  and  various  other  creatures  associated  with  Live  Rock  die  off  and  cause  an  Ammonia  spike  when  added  to  a  new  tank.  That  is  why  ideally  you  should  get  your  entire  stock  of  Live  rock  in  at  the  cycling  stage  itself  and  then  only  supplement  with  dead  rock  or  fully  cured  Live  rock  that  has  been  transported  properly

 Hi,
 
 2  situations  can  arise.
 
 1.  You  take  live  rock  that  is  not  cured,  or  (precured  but  currently  dead)  resulting  in  die  offs  and  new  cycling.
 
 2.  You  take  it  from  an  established  aquarium,  but  while  transporting  and  storing  in  your  house  for  long  period  (read  more  than  1-2  hours),  partial  die  offs  start.
 
 Solution
 
 1.  Uncured  live  rock  -  Do  not  add  livestock  till  cycling  is  complete.
 2.  Cured  live  rock  from  established  LFS  tank  -  Carry  them  in  covered  buckets  with  water  from  the  LFS's  aquarium.  Or  if  not,  cover  with  layers  of  wet  (with  LFS  tank  water)  paper  and  wrap  with  plastic  sheets  to  seal  in  the  moisture.  On  reaching  home  immediately  wash  it  with  your  tank's  water  and  put  it  in  your  tank.  You  can  acclimatise  the  rocks  to  prevent  shock  to  the  growth/inhabitants.
 
 Finally  please  note  that  I  am  not  an  expert  but  only  follow  what  I  have  been  advised  and  came  across  in  different  places.
