Living stone?Dead stone?
Let us understand the difference between the two types of stone:
Dead stones are the result of sun exposure of live stones that have not been selected for various reasons.It is generally all white or all gray, and there may be green traces of algae residues.Dead stones are dead from the inside out, not empty.The dead bodies of bacteria and microorganisms stored in dead stones will decay after being exposed to water and will be released slowly.
Opening a tank with a dead stone requires going through a process of returning the dead stone to the sun, that is, the dead body in the dead stone is rotted out of the body, and then the tank is opened after culturing.Generally using the algae bursting method requires 1-2 months to open the tank.Therefore, the initial investment of the dead stone cylinder is the lowest, and the later maintenance cost is the highest.
In terms of landscaping, the shape of the dead stone is entirely dependent on the sky, and it is not optional. It depends on the skill and luck of the fish friends.
The live rock is taken from the natural sea city by fishermen and has a complete flora and microbial community, which is ideal for opening the tank.However, the situation of living stones in China is not ideal. It is not easy to find high-quality living stones.According to the definition of live rock, dehydration for more than 2 hours will cause the loss of devastating organisms and death.In the past, after collecting live rocks, domestic fishermen placed them on the shipboard and transported them to the port in the sun. They were transported to the fishing ground by truck dehydration, and then dehydrated and transported by air to fish friends.So all the living stones we received were dead and smelly.It takes a period of healing to restore the live rock to its ability to cultivate bacteria.
The use of live rock to open the tank is generally popular sea mud algae tank method and algae burst method.The difference is that the former uses the bottom cylinder to turn on the light, and the latter uses the main cylinder to turn on the light.The sea mud algae tank method requires about 14 days to complete the opening of the tank with the water change, and the blasting algae method needs 1-2 months to complete the opening of the tank with the water change.The opening time depends on the length of live rock transportation.
In terms of landscaping, living stones are the same as dead stones, and they have different shapes.
