What type of rock do people use for base rock? My LFS sells base rock, but it is live (has bristle worms and other critters in it). Should I just fill my tank with that, or is there a type of "dry" rock that I can add? I thought I could add Tufa rock, but nobody else seems to agree.

The LFS around here sell base rock. It just looks like dead LR. I got 3 pieces the other day to build a bridge(a small one). The cost was $1.69 /lb.

You can also get base rock from www.hirocks.com. I have read people using this rock with good results. It is from Hawaii and the price is pretty good. I was going to order some but after getting my LR in, I need to see how much rock I really need now.
