    Biotek reef rock. Vs BRS reef saver rock.

    I’ve used BRS reefsaver rock for a long time. I’m setting up a 180 and looking to purchase some rock. I can’t find a single review about the biotek rock, yet it looks the same as the reef saver and about a $1 per pound cheaper. Any experience with the biotek rock. Thank you.

    Is my rock live?

    A while ago(3-4 years ago) when I first started my tank, I used Dry rock. I never got coralline algae to grow even though my calcium is at about 400-420 and my dkh is at 10-11. I am now wondering if my dry rock is now live and how would I know if it is. I am honestly just assuming its live since...
