Any suggestions for base rock?

Looking for opinions about what type of rock to use as a base rock. I want to do approx 25 lbs of BR and 50 lbs or LR for my 72G bowfront FOWLR tank. Just wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions! Thanks

How far are you from Northampton, PA. Something Fishy has base rock for $0.99/lb.

Texas Holey Rock looks really awesome when it turns into live rock.

I believe he is up around State College. Probably still in mourning from the pummeling they took from USC. It's evil but it was the highlight of my new year.

Not big on Texas Holey Rock. I stick with some good advice I received regarding rock ; 'If it doesn't come from the ocean it's not going in my tank' ... Just a personal preference.

Cool, I will check out those places, went to "That Fish Place" on Sunday and bought my aquarium and supplies. They had a nice selection of base rock but my truck was full with the aquarium, stand, skimmer, pump, R/O D/I filter, etc. Not in mourning over Nittany Lions, ND fan here!!! Thanks everyone!

I'm dying to check that store out in person. Wife and I are already planning a camping trip to Lancaster late Spring.. Maybe instead of my normal "golf" day, I'll take the kids to ThatFishStore.
