Anyone ever order LR from liveaquaria.com

I'm planning on ordering 90 pounds of fiji rock from liveaquaria.com and having it shipped overnight. Anyone ever ordered rock from them? Is it any good and how long did you have to cure the pre-cured rock for?

260 bucks sorry...had the price wrong...i think its just a little over 300 bucks with shipping...i think i figured something like that out. I'm looking to keep it under 350 bucks and for 90 pounds thats a good deal it seems. I need pre-cured rock.

LR from liveaquaria.com is not pre-cured either. The Fiji rock is out of the water for longer than when you order and they just put wet newspaper on it. You will have die off. I had mine shipped 2 day and it had a lot of die off. I was fine with it since my tank had not cycled yet.

The rock comes from Fiji and I think the only ship the rock one or two days a week so that should tell you something. BTW, I love the rock I got you liveaquaria but it is not cured LR when you get it.
