so lets say i siphon some water out of my tank and fill a rubbermaid tub, should i just let my tank sit "stagnent"? also i never scrubbed it, is it to late? i don't see why i couldnt let the rock just sit in that much water, wouldnt it just dilute it even more?? and magically it stopped dripping but ill keep an eye on it everyday to see if it comes back. and in some of the crevices of the rock there a white cloudy "bulbs" so when i did a small water change i sucked it up and under it looks like an old coral?? ill try to gets pics maybe? also since its only 20lbs could i do it in a 5 gallon bucket?

You could use a 5 gallon bucket, but a larger volume of water would cure the rock faster. Dilution is key! I would just use a small storage tote.

Why would your tank be sitting stagnant??? You would still have water movement.
