What to look for when shopping for LR?

Im shopping for LR this weekend !! I would get my LR online but thats another subject(credit) so Im going to a LFS to buy my LR. In northern California I have allot to choose from. Many of them store it in a tank with a skimmer and SW(is that curing?).What do I look for in a quality LR?Most of the LFS carry fiji LR, are there ones that I should look for or avoid?

look for the rock with the most coraline algae and critters if you can see them. Try to avoid any with aptaisa anemones as they are a pain in the...

Agreed. Also, Fiji rock needs a few weeks to fully cure so try to buy rock that has been in the dealers tank for at least that long.
