euro_boy, Where are you in Canada?
I got my LR
from J&L aquatics in vancouver, and paid $6.29 for their most expensive rock (vanuatu) which is awesome. Tons of colours, and great shapes.
It might be similar to the LR
many have seen in their LFS
, but I still think you could do MUCH better for MUCH less. J&L have fiji premium for just over $4 CAN, with lots of purple on it.
Coraline doesn't just appear, something needs to be introduced into the tank with it on it to seed more growth. My recommendation would be to get good coraline coverage to start, otherwise you should just go with cheap base rock and wait that out. No sense in spending $7 a pound on bacteria colonized base-rock, IMO
. There's more to LR
than just bacterial colonization!!!
