The rock at the LFS is live in one sense and the most important way because it has the beneficial bacteria on it to start your cycle with. That is the most important thing but as far as the coraliline Algea on the rock grow it yourself. I have 200 lbs in my tank and it hardly had any but it does now. Also cured rock from the LFS seems to be more rid of the nasties that come with shipped LR.
