How much Marco Rock for my 55 gallor tank?

I was looking to start a reef tank and have heard great things about the key largo dry rock from marcorocks.com, I wanted to go with a nice full look, but I obviously don't want to over crowd the tank. I was thinking either 50 or 75 lbs of the Marco rock... Anybody with advice or pics of there tanks w/ the rock would be much appreciated.

P.S. I was also planing to seed with coraline from a live rock, anyone have success with that?

I'd say about 1.5-2 lbs of rock per gal. I have the same tank size and I ordered 80lbs of Fiji. 55 lbs is not much, you're going to want to add more in the future cause you're tank will still kinda look empty IMO. The more rocks the better for your filtration

I've seen that my concern is that this is dry rock, and very porous.(more rock for less weight)

Start with 50lbs you can always add more if you feel the need
