The LFS weighted it it was just over 10lbs. But petco didn't weight it they where all different sizes and all the same price.

$20 for a 10lb LR sounds like a good deal to me! haha

If I was you, I'd go to Petco and get the largest pieces I could find (of course a decent weight) and then break them down at home if you need. I'm not sure how large they are or how much they weigh, but if it's less than $5/lb, then you're getting a bargain; most LFS charge $7-15/lb

Petco doesn't weight LR it's $20 for any piece. The LFS was $6 a lb. I'm prob get some more Fiji only because their is a nice coralline algea on it.

I was saying if you could "guestimate" the weight and figure if it was worth more than $20

Would say it's around 4-5lbs. But that a good idea on carrying something or similar weight.

Well I'm goin to petco tomorrow and hopefully get a deal. Maybe it's best to see when they get shipments in so they're not picked over
