I got it 4.50 lbs. At a local retailer. They are good folks, it think that let it go at .50 cents over cost.

Nice rock!

I picked up around 40# from my local retailer for $4.50 a lb. The remaining 130lb I picked up from a local fella I found on craigslist who was tearing their tank down for $3 a lb, the larger pieces (one piece alone is 40lb) for $2 a lb. The benefit of this is they didn't need to be cycled, and already came with tonnes of coraline algae, soft corals, and all kinds of good critters crawling around.

On the topic of macro algae, is there a link that explains what all the different types of macro are?

I don't care for the porcelain (far eastern) piece. I think it just takes away from the "Natural" sea scape. I wouldn't have it in there if I had nice live rock like that. Just my opinion.

That is harsh, completely un-called for bashing my tank... In case you did not know that is an artifact.

Eventually it will go, but before I got the live rock I wanted to have a few places for the fish to hide when it was just a bear tank. Once my cycle is done it will more than likely goto the goodwill.

When I was adding the live rock, I tried to pull it but low and behold a fish was camped out inside.

919, don't think of it as a "bashing your tank". DJ was just giving an opinion, which you asked for.
I kinda agree, that why I am a little jealous of the FW folks that can do a "theme" aquascape of their tanks....sigh....I missed out on that, but I love SCUBA in the SW so I have my own opinions.

The LR looks great. It looks like what is known as "Carribean" or "Florida" aquacultured LR where I am from here in Minnesota. It goes for around $10-$12 PER Pound here. It is some of the most colorful LR I have seen.
