Dead Coral Question      5/18/15
Hi, I have a ton of dead coral that has been only skeleton with no tissue dead coral skeletons because they leech nitrates.
<Mmm; no. Without the tissue, what is left is almost all CaCO3... a form of not very soluble limestone>
I always thought they would become live rock and harbor beneficial bacteria. What is correct?
<You much more so>
Thank you,
<Cheers, Bob Fenner>
