As long as you do it slowly it will be OK.

I think the best way would be to cure the rock in a barrel with now light. Only bubler and heater. What do you guy's think?

My thoughts are to build racks out of 1/2" diameter PVC to raise the rocks off the bottom about 3/4". The sand should be able to cover the piping. This would allow sand sifting critters to actually get under the rocks. What do you guys think?
I did this and it worked great. Lots of extra caves etc.
