Is this base rock?

Is that base rock because its really cheap but they call it foundation rock, so just wondering what the difference is.

Hi.... it's base/foundation rock that is live just not as "pretty" as far as all the goodies... color & things that typicaly comes on premuim live rock... corals, macro and colorful coralline, but it will become live with those things in time when you add some premium rock... no sense iin paying high $$$ for rock that's going to be covered anyways right?

I mix live base with nice premium rock when doing my tanks... in time all exposed surfaces are beautiful with color and life.

How funny! That is exactly what I'm planning on doing, buiboy! Using that exact rock you posted a link to build my foundation....then I will also buy a box of this:

That will go on top!

Don't forget to check out hirocks.com - I got 60lbs of rubble rock from them last month. Very nice stuff. It is very cheap, dry, base rock. It's hit or miss though. Some pieces are kind of dense, but I'd say most of mine were pretty light.
