Hmmm I think I might try one eventually.... And has anyone been to or tryed reefsystems.com live rock ? They are a coral farm in new Albany Ohio which is about an hour from me ... I'm thinking I'm going to go there to get my rock and corals because their prices are ridiculous ! 6 dollars a pound for live rock ??? Just seeing if anyone has tried them ?
