I agree with the rest. I started with 1/2 LR and the other 1/2 Base Rock. The Base Rock will eventually become live. I did buy one 20 lb bag of live sand from Dr. Foster & Smith though it would have been cheaper to get a cup from someone else.

I started my tank with all Live Rock (started as a nano tank) and upgraded to a larger tank, and have been slowly adding new rock, am done now, the rock I have been adding has either had corals attatched, or been base rock.

My base rock tends to look just like the previous live orck in about a months time, and has full coraline growth in about 2-3 months.

When I upgrade to a bigger tank, I may add a few pieces of live rock on top of what I have, but mostly just to ensure I get a larger variety of organisms, but otherwise the majority of new rock will be base rock.

I like going with alot of base rock because I have a wider option of choosing what the rock looks like and how it will fit into the overall tank setup.
