    Hi People

    I have purchased some dead white coral skeletons and would like to find out if anyone has that in their saltwater tanks?

    Since there are already dead, can I put them directly in the tank or should I rinse first?

    If so, can anybody advise me how do I rinse them?

    I would suggest to soak them in freshwater or boiling water for a day or 2 to kill off any possible hitchhiker.

    Thanks, I have rinsed the skeletons with tap water (noticed a few small dead crabs inside) den soak them in boiling water for a day...will rinse them once more time with tap water..dry them and then lastly rinse with saltwater... maybe abit long winded but I just wana play safe...

    I presume coral skeletons will not affect water chemistry ya?
