LFS stinks here. Was hoping for something with good reviews.

IMO Liveaquaria has the best LR.

+1 for liveaquaria.com, I ordered 40lbs of the premium Fiji rock and it came fast and only took a week and a half to cure in my curing tub. The rock sizes ranged from a few fist sized chunks to around 6 inches in diameter.

If you want aquacultured Caribbean rock, Live Rock - Tampa Bay Saltwater Aquacultured Live Rock has the oldest permit in the country, and therefore the most mature rock. Pros: more types of critters, some of which are cool. Cons: more types of critters, some of which are detrimental.

+1 for LiveAquaria (the doctors purchased a great seller and maintain that quality). There are quite a few good on-line sites. Blu Zoo Aquatics seems to have some nice Bima rock now. eBay has several sellers, but I can't vouch for any of them though some folks have had good experiences.

Thanks guys! When setting up a new tank, can I put all the live rock and sand in at once or do I have to limit it?
