40 pounds of live rock ---- let's say the density is about three to four times that of water

then ...

40 pounds of rock should take up around 12 to 15 gallons of volume

This is only a rough estimate since the three inches of sand probably occupies 2 gallons of volume.

So - no - I don't think that you got ripped off.


You know you are a true fish-o-holic if you can field strip any powerhead on the market.
