My only two choices where Fuji or Tonga branch from the LFS. Of course, this is before I found AA!! If I were to choose now, I would go with the "keys" rock from liverocks.com. I have a LFS that sell some of the smae stuff and calls it "carribean" LR. Great color, great life, lots of fun!

I have one store around here thats sells it, and it's like $11 a pound. It looks great though. Did you ever go to Iowa Pet Foods and Seascapes?

I started with mostly rock from Florida, looked very similar in color the www.liverocks.com "Keys" rock.

I am added a bunch of Fiji to the tank in the next couple days, should be a nice contrast.
