Do baserock too. It's cheap and will become live overtime.

Ya that's been the plan to use as much base rock as needed then place live rock on top and in front to seed base rock but it will be a couple of weeks before buying live rock I will probably ly just buy base rock at lfs that way I can structure it a piece at a time

That is what I was telling you. If you use this rock you are sure not to have pests and only have what you put in your tank

Another option is ecoliverock.org it's cheap live rock free shipping no die off and 100% of proceeds go to reef sustaining programs

Harvesting live rock from reefs shouldn't be aloud IMO

Ya I was wanting the the added animals from live rock not copepods and plankton I can harvest them from my 55 gal refugiim. That's why I was wanting fresh rock. When I was more involved they could only harvest rock that is busted and storm rubble not part of the reef itself Im pretty sure its still that way so harvesting live rock does not deplete the reefs

Oh yeah for sure I am not trying to harp on anyone just giving an option that supports a good cause even if you got half and half you would get your hitchhickers and support them

At least check out the site

Just catching up. Great tank size. The 180 has a good footprint and not difficult to reach the bottom. Did you get the LED's I have over my tank?
BTW, that's a decent skimmer also.
