If you cycle your baserock it becomes "live" as you cycle. Within a month or two it will look as live as regular live rock. I can barely tell the difference in my tank now and it's been 4 months or so. It's all covered in coralline algae and blends in perfectly.

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