At all the lfs live rock is $6-$12 lb, but there is a guy I found 10 minutes from my house that sells coral and rock out of his house. Very cool setup looks like a small fish store. He has 800lb of live rock on hand last I seen. His prices are less than half of the stores I have been to in phoenix.

Yesterday I ordered a aquaticlife 48", 4 lamp fixture. Should get it no later than the 7th. In the mean time I have some green hair algae to fight with.

So about two weeks ago I sold the 405 I had on my tank. When I took it off I started to grow green hair algae. I guess the media in it kept it down? So I have a hang on the back filter sitting around and I am thinking that if I put some phosphate media in it I can fight the algae, till I get a reactor? Or is it a waste of money to buy the media?

I would buy the media and get the phosphates down as low as you can so the gfo can keep the levels low.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
