My LFS says it's garbage. Here's a pic of my LR. The one that's redish is the Fiji. I bought the Fiji from petco. The others I bought from my LFS. Exotic corals and fish in Milford ct.

exotic corals and fish is lying to you. chances are, they bought the rock from the exact same place. while i wouldn't expect the petco rock to be fully cured(as with any LFS "fully cured" rock), i would not say it's garbage. it's live rock from fiji. what were you wanting it to be? if the answer, is "cured", then view the above statement.

hand made? how is his rock made? i don't know...i would think it's like all the other rock from fiji, and just yanked from the ocean and put in boxes.
google "fiji live rock". you'll see many vendors, and tales about how they get the "good rock"....lol.
it's all the same rock, coming from the same place.
your LFS may have sold you base rock. no life on it at all. i would suspect the colorful rock coming from the ocean before the plain white rock.
