To GARF or not

I was wondering if anyone had any feed back on the AragocreteTM offered by GARF?

Is this better for starting a new tank then typical live rock?

What are the benifits/detriments?

Thanks!

I would definitely go with as much Liverock as possible and backfill with dry base rock if need be. From everything I read on this forum, Liverocks.com is the very best for starting out and HIrocks.com is great for bulk base rock. I have used hirocks.com but I have not used Liverocks.com yet, but will be using them shortly. The agrocrete will only look marginally like rock and offer very few benefits compared to live rock.
