Questions that need to be answered :)

I am looking to by live rocks but I dont know what are good ones and what are bad ones?

so far I have fiji but they are costly... SO I was wondering if you guys have a website that you guys go to, to by live rocks?

also I guess you can say im a fowlr, do I need a refugium? is it necessary?

im only looking to take care of clown fish and sea anemones.

How big is your tank? Has it cycled? What lighting do you have? How much LR do you already have?

Quality live rock anywhere is going to be costly. However, since you already have some LR, you can use that to seed much cheaper base rock and save a TON of cash. I also support marcorocks.com, I ordered from them and the base rock was fantastic.

I second the reefcleaners.org rock. It's the main dry rock I've used in countless setups and it's always perfect. I believe it's $105 right now for a 50lb box with free shipping. You can also request special sizes too if you put it in the comments section.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My tank has been cycled but 10 pound of live fiji rocks. lighting I am still deciding cause I am just switching over to my 29G tank.

People like different looks so you can mix and match whatever rock you like.
