Also.. you dont need all the Rock to be Live... You can buy like 30lbs of LR
and another 30lb of what is called BaseRock. It's just dried out LR
and it's MUCH cheaper... Over time, the BaseRock will become live as well.
When setting up a new tank, you can use all the baseRock for the lower portion of your Aquascaping (the base). Then build up with the LiveRock.
Personally, I like ALOT of rock.. I plan to buy more.. it's all personal preference. But if your using it for your main source of biological filtration, you'll need enough to handle the bio-load of the tank.
