Aquaculturing Live Rock

I just recently helped a friend setup a 240 gallon tank. In return, he gave me a 75 with stand, canopy, VHO setup, Skimmer, Wet/Dry & LS for free. I have no time for another tank, but what about growing some live rock? I get baserock for .10 a lb. Why not get 200-300 lbs, seed it with LR and let the Coraline take over for a few months, then turn around and sell the LR for $2.00 a lb? Is this a feasible plan, or is there something I've missed?

To me that plan sounds pretty good. As long as you have people willing to buy, everything should work out alright.

Just make sure your LFS is interested in buying it from you first.

I know alot of saltwater buffs. I was thinking I would sell it to them. In all reality, we would all make a better deal. I would get cash for the rock instead of credit, and the guys would get LR for 1/4 of what it's normally sold for.

Plus, you could sell the rock for $4/lb instead of $2.
