Where should I get my Live Rock?

I am looking at 45lb's Fiji live rock on Liveaquaria.com, and at 50lbs of Premium Decorator aquacultured live rock Liverockranch.com

What would you say is the better rock/site to order from, they both cost about the same I think its like $10 more for the 5 extra lbs of rock so that doesnt matter to me. I just want to get the best rock for the price I can for my reef tank Im setting up.

just found out the "free shipping" from liverockranch.com is fexex ground and from experience they arnt the fastest service in the world while If I get it from Liveaquaria id pay for 2day air. would this make much difference in my decision or will it not matter?

why do you want to rush a delivery its not the end of the world to have to wait a bit longer, the rock won't die if its in water

plus you'll have to cure the rock either way so might as well go for the cheaper stuff
