I don't know if it means anything but the "base rocks" at liverocks.com is not dry rock. It comes in with live on it, it just isn't as pretty. (according to Zack).

I knew that the base rock from live rock wasn't dry, I just didn't have enough LR in my tank and thought I needed to add more "living" rock and didn't know that the dry base rock could be used in addition (does that make sense). I thought the dry base rock was something one used after you had the appropriate amount of LR for your size tank, after doing more reading and understanding, I bought the dry rock and plan on seeding it with my LR I now have.

Actually I think you will be suprised how much faster it happens than it's been suggested. The fauna will only take a few short months and in less than a year you should have some decent signs of coralline growth depending on light and maintained chemsitry.

Cheers

And one more source of cheap base rock.

Mine was almost pure white when I got it, but you can't tell by looking at it now...
