It's www.liverocks.com with the s. They had some of the best lr around with tons of life. They are not shipping lr right now because the hurricanes wiped them out last year. Hopefully they will be back some time this year but it could be longer. Right now finding quality lr can be a chore.

Looks nice. Also looks like they sent you a lot of branch. Let me know how the cycle's coming along. I just started curing and my ammonia's out of control!

Here a few random pics of my rock off ebay:

As of Friday Night, my Ammonia was Nada, or at least barely detectable (if I was reading hte Colors Correctly, which I'm not 100% sure of)...

I am running another Ammonia test now to see where I'm at... also I have a 'Free' Ammonia Test and a 'Total' Ammonia... I ran the Free on Friday, but not the Total, which is what I"m doing now...

I put the rock in on Thurday, but I'm not sure how my cycle will be since the Rock was Cured LR, had 2 day Shipping worth of Die-Off, and I didn't use a Shirmp (and hope I don't have too... it just seem cruel and unusal punishment to put that poor little shrimp through that... I'm going to be promoting a Fishless/Shrimpless Cycle if I can work out the details...)

I just did the Total Ammonia (Reagent I think) on my water , and it was reading at about 0.2 (Or Medium Light Green on my little sensor thingy)... so there is more today than Friday... I'm not sure what I sholud expect, or how high of a "spike" I might get, but it is rising... I need to go run my Trite and Trate tests here again too...

As far as the shrimp, I do not eat anything that swims, slithers, oozes or crawls of out of an ocean, lake , river, etc.... A Steak from a Cow walking thru a Farm Pond is as close to 'SeaFood' as I will get...

I hear yah, cut off its horns, wipe it's *** and throw it on a plate! I like my meat the same way But you do understand you're talking about a dead shrimps feelings, right? :P
