Makes sure to find out what kinds of meds he has used in that tank.

At least ensure he's got healthy inverts in the tank. That'd be a sign there was no copper used.

If copper was used in the tank at all, it can build up in the tank (including in the liverock) and leech out into your water, which will kill your inverts. If the tank you are getting the liverock from has healthy inverts in it, you don't need to worry about copper use.

2 dollars a lb is a good deal if it`s OK. The other folks told you what to check for.
