I haven't picked it up yet but he said that he epoxied Fiji rock together and then bought coral and epoxied those on as well. But he also said that half of it is inserts. I was planning on using an eshopps wet dry filter I have along and instead of bioballs fill it with liverock. And for mechanical filtration I have a canister filter with a UV sterilizer

If just doing fish why not just use the bio balls that come with this filter? Would be a lot easier to clean than a compartment of LR?

It can lead to nitrates if disturbed. Nitrates can still harm fish.

Got my order today It was a little better than reefcleaners. I ordered 10lbs and got 15lbs and the rock is super porous. The only thing I can say I didnt like was the customer service but hey, everything can't be perfect. I also got my powerheads today

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I was wondering if they would just sell the sand? I have enough rock already and their sand is only $15 for 40lbs I believe. i will need 80lbs for my 60g build soon.

They do sell the sand by itself. I like it because they wash it too.
