Is the rock still alive?
Now I am putting the rock in a tank that is not going to see any live stock till the cycle is done so does it even mater if the rock smells bad?
Help please I was planing on putting the rock in tonight but I am going to wait for a responce.
What do I do put the rock in?
Do something else?
What happened is that you basically started curing your rock again. It has die off and that is were the smell is coming from.
