SirLight, did you actually price rock from Liverocks.com? Yes my shipping was something like $100, but it was still cheaper to buy 40lbs of Keyes rock online for a shipped price of like $4.50/lb, than to buy it locally for $5.99/lb. Plus the keyes rock was cured, had hitch hikers, and was beautifully covered in coralline, while the local LR
was un-cured, void of hitch-hikers (even pods
!), and zero coraline.
But that's only shipping Fl to Nebraska...halfway across the country instead of teh whole way.
