You can buy dry rock as well. It is aragonite based rock that is quarried from old reefs that are now on dry land. It looks just like LR
, and is calcium based so it won't leach nasty stuff into your tank. If can't find a good source of LR
this is a good way to go as well. Many of us will use a large portion of dry rock with a few pieces of LR
to seed the dry rock. The dry rock is significantly cheaper.
