live rock shipping ?

hey i think i already know the answer to this but i was just checking to see what the opions were. lr in ups ground shipping would take three days to get here and they would make most of it dead a not worth the money right. i was told for extra 20 the person on selling it on ebay could do one or two day air service. so i think the 20 extra bucks would be a good thing to do and not loose half or more of the good stuff on the rock
let me know what ya think

I would have it sent 1 day. Anything more greatly increases your deaths. I would be cautious of live rock from ebay. Make sure you check them out. Contact people who purchased it from them. No negatives sometimes means the buyer did not want a negative.

What's the URL of the auction? We're not here to buy the rock, just to check out the seller.

Seems to be a reputable seller. You're just going to have to make sure you're comfortable buying 100 lbs of uncured rock.

I've purchased from this seller a few months ago and was very happy with the product. I ordered 25 pounds and they were almost all large pieces - very little rubble. Very interesting shapes.

The rock is uncured and comes in very dirty, but once cleaned up - very nice. Coralline is currently growing, but not much else came in on the rock . There were some sponges and small duster worms.
