phony rock

does anyone know the website or any alternative man-made-rock for sale. I came across the website once and now I cant find it. They sold rocks that where not live and formed, sculpered or made by them and added to a system were over time it would become LR.

it wasnt LR at all, it was meant to turn into LR over time in your fishtank and was sold for something like 2 dollars a pound. I can get fiji LR at the LFS for 4 dollars a lb.

GARF.org has some pretty cool recipes for Do-it-Yourself rock ideas. Pretty basic, affordable and effective..not to mention it's a method that doesn't destroy reefs(not saying all live rock suppliers do this). Good luck & HTH.

I got hirocks and it is almost entirely encrusted in purple corraline, it was white and added to the LR I already had....looked really funny with the other rock but it took a few weeks and stuff was growing all over it.

Yeah it will take a couple days. We waited I think 8 days, just give em a call and find out when they shipped it out. can't remember if I got an email or not. But I ordered the golfball sized rock and 60lb's of the good large rock...they came on seperate days. I was impressed with it once it got here though.
