Look into the reef saver rock at Bulk Reef. It is quarried, super clean and makes great walls and caves. It's also cheap and very environmentally friendly. Seed it with a few pieces of live rock and you will be good to go.

Thanks! I will definatly look at Bulk Reef right now. Im up for anything eco friendly. Are the pieces good for constructing caves and arches? We were really going for the arch look

I have reef saver rock in my 8g ands my favorite but it's shipping is expensive for rock. Cost me 30 for 8lbs and you'd need 40 or so.

Yeah that's why I didn't need any epoxy. But its not too different from regular base rock so don't let it bum you out. Total would be $124

My son just bought some. He thought he got a good deal. The rock looks really cool. I would be careful of other quarried rock as it might have some solvable minerals in it you won't want. Remember here is no water weight with this and BRS ships any order over $100 for free...
