To start, I've got a 44 gal tank which has had water and live sand in it for about a month. No fish or inverts yet. Two days ago I added 35 lbs of live rock. I'm a bit concerned about my live rock so I figured I ask here and see what everyone thought. I ordered my live rock from a company in California and I live in Virginia. It was shipped via UPS on a Monday and I was to get it Friday. Due to some extreme weather somewhere across the US my package was delay and ended up sitting in a UPS storage facility for a weekend. I ended up getting it the following Monday. The live rock was packaged in a plastic bag which was then placed in a Styrofoam box, which was placed in a cardboard box. When I received the package the entire bottom of the cardboard box was soaked and any water inside had leaked out. The live rock also had a sort of musty/dirty odor to it. I went ahead and scrubbed it down in a saltwater filled bucket and put it in my tank. Two days later, all seems fine. My ammonia level is currently at 1.0 and the protein skimmer is just now starting to foam up. My question is, should I be concerned my live rock sat out of water for a week? I don't want to have extreme die off and have uncontrollable ammonia level in my tank. I'm just afraid nothing living on/in the live rock may have survived. Any input or comments are welcome. Thanks in advance.
