I went with 40 lbs of Keys, I hear that both are great in their own ways. unfortunatly I did not get any brittle stars on my rock, but the coraline growth was fantastic!!!

check out my gallery to see what it looks like.

I made up my mind, I ordered 30 pounds each of the Gulf, Keys and Coral for my 190 gallon, I will let you know how it went next week.

great!!! but be prepared. 60 lbs is nothing in a 190 gallon tank. I have a 37 gallon tank and 60 lbs is just about the right amount of rock for a tank that size.
perhaps you may want to consider some dry base rock as well. In a few months, it too will become live.

Thanks for the heads up, but I had already ordered base rock from hirocks.com. I have 180 pounds already and it barely makes a dent. The tank looks soooo empty. I have another 120 pounds coming from hirocks and then the 90 from liverocks.com. That will be almost 300 total. If that is not enough, my LFS has some verrrrry nice Tonga branch I was eyeing up (very pricey though).
