Which Rock To Use?

I recently took out 40 pounds of my live rock I had in the tank for 3 years to help start a tank for a little girl suffering from cancer. Wanted to give her a relaxing saltwater Aquarium to look at while laying at home recovering. Now I'm in search of some replacement rock. I'm thinking of using Real Reef, Marco Dry Rock or Carib Sea Life Rock. Don't want to go with Wild live rock as I don't want to introduce anything bad to my established reef. Which would be better? Thanks!!

I don't have any real hands on with any of them, but the real reef stuff has always had my attention for some reason. I'd love to see the stuff first hand.

I just set up an IM40 w/ Marco rocks.

IMO its a Great product!
I soaked it in Rodi for a week and no phosphates detectable.

(I still acid washed it before I started the tank just to be on safe side).

Its beautiful, light and porous.
