I would visit all the LFS in your area, but if you do purchase it from online you will have to cure it and prepare it for you tank in a seperate tank. Since you already have an established tank the die-off from your live rock will cause a spike of ammonia and might be bad to you your already established live rock.

I get mine from the LFS. You might as others suggested have to order and cure yourself. It will be more expensive at the LFS.

But LA also tells you to recure it when you get it. As it is not totally cured.

Try this place. I've heard nothing but good things about them. Sometimes I've heard you get fish with your LR. Thats how live it is!

you will be hard-pressed to find a company that ships LR in water. the shipping with rock and water would be outragious. There are several sites like www.tampabaysaltwater.com that ship premium LR next day air covered in wet shop towels. There is very little die-off when shipped this way and a great option as oppossed to paying higher prices at the LFS.
