I think it is great rock, especially the keys stuff, and since youre getting sand you might as well order some live sand from them as well.

I have had nothing but positive results with that rock.

Hope your tank turns out great!

Equivlent IMO. Both are FL aquaculture rock. Both have aquaculture plots off the coast of FL in the ocean. Both have had the rock in these plots for the last few years. So in my mind the tampa bay saltwater rock or the liverocks.com rock would be simular in quality as far as growth and life.

Our gulf reef site is further offshore and has a little different types of life
forms on it but not very different. All of our seed rock is from the same place
where they have some good seed and some not so good. All in all our gulf rock is
very similar.
The keys rock blows them away. Our keys lease sites are producing the finest
live rock in the industry. We use the same seed rock but our site location is
better and was set 850,000 pounds at one site and just under 300,000 pounds on
the other. Both sites were built by hand in one month so they created a full
reef environment immediately. They build their reef a little at a time and never
attracted the diversity of life we have. I think they are still building theirs,
we have been growing in the keys since 1998. One other thing, we build our reefs
very different than they do. I will not say exactly but it has to do with the
size of the rock we mix on our reefs and the shape we form the reefs into.
The real difference is our customer service, packaging and price.

My live rock from www.liverocks.com is EnRoute! It got dropped off at 8:58pm CST and I will pick it up around 9:20am CST. Just over 12 hours in shipment.
