Live Rock in Canada

Hey all...

Well I've been surfing these boards for about a week and I have to tell you I feel pretty confident in setting up my tank after being armoured with all this great info. I was just wondering as my first post to the boards if anyone knows where to get some good and fairly priced live rock here in Canada. My lfs sells it for 10/lb. WOW... I'm setting up a 75 gallon... 10 bucks..no way.

Any suggestions would be great. Thanks all.

Thanks for the reply... From what I calculated it would cost approx 100 dollars to ship. I think I'm going to make an hours trip to London to Big Al's.. I heard through the grapevine they recently had a sale for 4.59/lb.. carry out.

Big Al's is the by far the last place I would give my money to. Extremely overpriced! but if you can get NICE LR from there I may consider it, and never shop there again. Almost double the price of J&L aquatics on everything!

Thanks alot for the responses. I found a site in Canada called... aquariacanada dot ca and they sell items which are fairly in line with JL. The thing about JL is that to ship the LR would cost me over a 100 bucks. Thanks again
