live rock storage

i have to fix the top rim on my tank. I put my live rock in a big tote container and have a hydor koralia powerhead placed inside the container and in the container with my live sand is an air raiting stone because I dont have another powerhead. is this enough to prevent die off or will I have a little? I am not planning on the rock?sand being in the tote more than a week and a half.

Yes you will. If it has touched air, then the critters in the sandbed are dead and it'll be better for you to clean it and start over.
