Hey I need the benefit of someones expertise, I'm new the the marine fish keeping and currently trying to set up my marine tank.
I have some live rock which needs curing but do I need to cure it separate from my main tank as I've not got nothing in it?

Hi, welcome to ReefBase  8D

Different people mean different things when they say curing.  What result are you trying to achieve by curing it?

Hi thanks for your reply, basically I brought a second hand tank and he gave me a load of live rock which has been out of   salt water for a while and I need to know if I was to put it in my tank how long would I need to wait for it to be save to stock out? Thanks

At least a month to build the bacteria back up. You've got to put it through a full cycle.
