I didn’t quarantine my rock but it did take a good 3 months to cycle it. I didn’t notice the clicking until around the 6 month mark if I remember right.
Same here. It took some time to actually here it. I think this one was too small to be noticable when I first got my rock. Took 6 months or so to notice it. I was lucky that it ended up in the hitchhiker tank really. Pulled 5 rocks out to convert my fish observation tank to a hitchhiker tank. It was hiding in one of those rocks after being cured and unfed for 6 months prior in a bucket. The rock came from gulfliverock.com.
