$6.50 to $8.00 a pound. Price varies pretty randomly between the four LFSs I go to. Luckily all of the LFS like to round down when weighing the rock

$3-$4.50 in san francisco. When I lived in La I could pick it up straight from the distributer at LAX ( which is where most LR and fish/corals first coe into the us) for even cheaper than that. They had "box" prices where it was a pound range per box (like a suprise).

mrpope,

Can you tell me about the quality of the rocks u got in those "box" lots and where exactly these ppl are so I can get some rocks for my new 40g tank I'm planning on setting up in the next few weeks? Spending 40-50 bux on the rocks instead of 200+ would really help with my budget.

Thanks.


Also...while looking for prices on tanks...i found this site which has 2 locations in the So Cal region Jeff's exotic fish www.exoticfish.com . They seem to have decent prices on fiji rock and good prices overall.
