    Cowfish posioned tank

    My cowfish died while on vacation and killed everything in my tank. I was just wondering if the live rock is trash or can it be reused? If it can be reused, what has to be done to it? If you have any other pointers on what needs to be done before trying to re-establish my tank, it would be appreciated. Thank you for your help!

    P.S. Boxfish/Cowfish=Dead tank

    Keep it running with fresh, high quality carbon and/or with efficient protein skimmer. with time , toxins should break down on its own along with increased temp. Not too high though in order to keep tank bio active. Would never throw out EXPENSIVE LR due to toxins from Cowfish.

    Hope all goes well!
