I wish I had a car. there are some good deals on live rock on craigslist. 3$ a pound. I may try one place in the city by train. Problem is transporting it all back. I should be able to carry 25-30lbs of Live rock I hope. This is why I was just going to get shipped

I'd vote 240's

Low but good enough for that size tank

I think you can do better price wise and quality wise. It's only $3 a lb if you buy like what 200lbs?
LOl

Youde probably be better off just buying it locally.

Is it? Darn. I will have to look locally then. Whats a good price for 25lbs Lr and 25lbs Ls? So I can try to haggle.

My budget is almost full, without any coral
