Whats the cheapest LR youve seen at your LFS?

A place about 5 miles from my house has live fiji rock 10lbs or less for 8.99/lb, 10-20lbs for 7.99, 20lbs+ 6.99. I thought that was pretty good considering another place sells it for 14.99. They've gotta be drunk or something
Also of all the LFS's I've been to all I see is fiji.

Fiji Live Rock for $2.75 per lb about 10 minutes from where I live. They could even ship to you but after that's all said and done, it would probably bring you up to about what you paid locally.

My LFS starts at $4.59 CND and goes down from there. Some give discounts on quantity.

Cheers
Steve
