Life Rock

Is there a place online to get cured live rock??
Also what's some good sand for reefs? And how much do I need to a 40g breeder? Is possible to use the one I have in my 29g?

Some good sites for live rock are:
Liverock Premium Aquatics - Liverock Aquarium Supplies
Sea Life Inc.
Your Reef Aquarium Supply Live Rock

For sand, you can use crushed coral, or aragonite. I prefer the aragonite look myself. Unless you're doing a deep sand bed, one inch should be enough. A pound per gallon, or use Sand Bed for an exact number.

For the sand just buy play sand at homedepot it $4 for a 50lbs bag 2 bags should be enough 3in bed in a 40 gal and 1 bag for the 29. Yes the rock can be used from your other tank if your taking the 29 down.

Might be good quality rock, but that's a steep price! I'd rather get my rock for $5/lbs and wait a few weeks to cure.

I have heard good things about those sites, and will be ordering 100lbs from premium aquatics soon.
