LR is good now matter what it looks like. Is it pretty with coraline algae,No. Is the best filtration you can get , yes..
If I were close I would buy it, scrub it in fresh SW and then use it. It dose not have to look nice to do its job. That is an added benefit.

I think that rock is gorgeous (structurally, which is all that matters to me)! Most LR that's for sale around here goes for 2$ a pound. I don't really bother looking at anything more expensive than that because I can usually find it from someone at 2$ a $. That being said I'm sure you could find someone to pick up the rock for 2.50-3$ a #.

And as far as coraline coverage I'm not as concerned/interested in that as I am bioload bearing capability. The color can come over time. Most people buying 2nd hand rock have some purple in their tanks already.

Sorry to hear that you're bailing out, but you have to do what makes you happy. I can't imagine not having corals. I just love watching them. They are just amazing to me.

I think if I had more time and money and something a bit smaller, I would enjoy it more. Im just at the point now that I don't want to even put forth the effort to change everything, I would rather just get it out of here. Any way, thanks for the info on the rock. If my lfs doesn't buy it, you may be seeing it for sale here shortly.
