I'm pleased as punch! The tank has had fish, inverts, and coral...stocking began Nov 13th. The rock is amazingly porous and provides lots of natural passthrus and hiding spots for blenny and the watchman goby/shrimp. The royal gramma has also been able to find pathways thru the large pieces in the photos. Circulation in the tank is also augmented and the porosity of the rock increases the bio-filtration and surface areas for all life forms.

Oh, the anemone also loves the rock...he's found a refuge that provides him light and circulation. The tomini and kole tangs also have hiding and refuge...and we have an interesting rockscape as a backdrop. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

I ordered my rock from reefrocks.net after reading a lot of good things about them online. The $85 price tag for 50lbs didn't hurt either.
