Where to Buy Base Rock From?

Hi everyone, some of you have told me some great places before, but I have forgotten the names.

So where do you guys buy your rock from? I am looking for a place where I can buy a lot for a really good price.

Thanks a lot!

[CENTER]Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)

You in central jersey? I have a cooler full could sell for cheap. Not sure what the going rate is tho. I'd say about 100 lbs I have if had to guess. I would like to keep some of it but most can go.

Marcorocks.com sells nice rock I'll attach a picture of what 50lbs look like in a 55g tank. Keep in mind my tank is new so the base rock has not gained much color yet.

I've stuck with reefcleaners, the rock is always great and John is super helpful with getting the sizes you want. reefrocks is cheaper but I think they take longer to ship. And of course theres BRS, I like the pukani and the tonga myself.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
