Think about base rock too. Cheaper that way. Often you can find intersting pieces or piece together great structures when it's dry and outside of the tank. Stay away from those fist sized chunk pieces down the stretch. They don't provide the best "building blocks" IMO. Look for the odd shaped, pourous stuff. Weight doesn't matter as much as the surface area and the nooks and crannies in the rock.

You doing fish only or reef?

i thought i read that it shouldnt be touching the rocks, is this true?
I would make sure that no LR will topple on it and possibly break it.

ive got 30 lbs of hirocks.com base rock in there. great deal. i would do it again, but i find myself trying to hide it because its so plain looking. i would like to just pick out the peices of lr that i think would fit where i want em now. i dont like those fist size peices either, hard to work with.

tank has been up for about a year and it was a tranfer. i just started to buy some corals a few months back. ive got yellow colony polyps, mushrooms, ricordia, and button polyps. they are small due to my budget. you can barley see em that pic, i shall post them when i get home from work. they are doin really well.
