Yeap, just paid £189 for 20kgs (44lbs) here, came today from STM & I did the carbonated dip on it, nothing came out though

The rock was well packed in a thick cling film type stuff & smelt ok on unwrapping, bloody surprised though just how little rock that is & I only have a 30gal tank!!

Gonna stack the rock in the tank with help from wifey tonight & then I'll add a couple of raw tiger prawns to get the cycle going

Its exciting now!

Cheers Shelton.

Live rock cost

I ended up ordering 70lbs tonga and 44lbs fiji from Marine Depot for $500 w/shipping. It is scheduled to be delivered on 7/14.

' got the rock!

I got the rock today from Marine Depot (spoke to "Robert" via phone)--it is beautiful! The tonga is covered with pink, orange, neon green and purple. The Fiji has a nice purple coloration. I ended up with 46 lbs Fiji, about 80 lbs Tonga and 50 lbs base rock.

Cool. Think you can take any pics? Also, did it come with a lot of hitchhikers?

The definition of "Bad Hitchhiker" is dependant on what kind of tank you want. If its FOWLR then you wont need to weed out near as many critters. I have a predatory tank and I didn't do any dips and set any traps. My puffer, lion, filefish, and frogfish have thoroughly enjoyed removing the hitchhikers. None of my fish are juveniles, so I doubt anything in the rock could do much more than annoy them before becoming a snack.

I paid almost $5.00 a lb with shipping.
