i get my rock from my LFS beacasue even if u order cured LR online u will still have to cure it when it gets home. if u have no prob with that order online its usually cheaper and nicer looking.

Not all together true. I ordered some LR from www.liverocks.com and it did not need to be re-cured. If shipped over-night with and in-transit time of less then 20hrs there should be little die off on the rock. They claim it is safe to add directly to the main and I experienced no NH3 spike when doing so. It really depends on where you get the rock from. My recommendation is liverocks.com.

Can you add live rock to a brand new tank that is cycling?
