That's not the first time LR.com has given awesome service. I know several months ago someone here bought 25lbs, and it arrived on time, but in horrid shape, and they posted here.
Mike had another 25lbs shipped out the next day, no charge, and it arrived in great shape.

I just wish every business out there tried to hold up such high standards.

Both Mike and Zach did an awsome job helping me out. Definatly some of the best service I have ever experenced.

There is a reason why 90% of the people on here recommend Liverocks.com above all others.

and by the way, its spelled liverocks.com with an s at the end. (they should really purchase liverock.com and have that point to their website too. It will save some confusion, and help keep potential competitors from taken advantage of them.)

I like Liverocks.com, they shipped me some nice rock. It always seems tho when i order rock from them or tampa bay saltwater. (same rock) I always get a mantis shrimp in the rock. Tampa bay also ships air-air, which is best cause they box it, mail it, and ship it to the airport by you and you pick it up, all in the same day. hands down is the best way to ship rock, or critters for that matter.

Keep in mind that DHL is new, and cheap...which is one reason they probably went with them as opposed to FedEx.

I for one would not like having to take time off from work to drive 10 miles to the airport to pick up some rock, just to save $10.

well fortunatly for me it's just a few miles from me, and i don't do it to save money, just time. It is faster than overnight, it's same day service, and gets tossed around less because it don't pass thru too many hands.

Keys rock is very nice, and I have not ordered gulf, but people seem to like both equally, they each have their own unique charateristics.

Check out liverocks.com to see pics.

I like my keys rock better than the gulf. The keys is where all my clams and my tube coral came from. My sponge, and the better color as well. As for the critters, unfortunately headed reef, we've gotten rid of all of the red crabs and now my bristle worm so I'm not sure how much else I ended up keeping from the gulf rock!

Keys rock is considered "top-shelf", very colorful and lot of coral and algea life. Gulf rock is known for its hitch hikers. Get the best of both worlds, half of each.
