Right now I'm still eyeballing a piece that's 54 lbs. but it's like 28 inches across and 6 inches high. My LfS is willing to sell it to me for 260$ and that's a steal since its usually 8.99$ a lb
Why!?!?! Just ask reefcleaners for a piece that big but higher. It would be under 150 if it was base!

Yes - but this is fully ready to go in my tank. Lol. I'm a woman. I don't have the patience to cure a rock when I want it now. Lol

Ok, the water isnt amazingly clear or anything. However, you can see through the tank. My guess is after a few water changes itll be clear.

I think im going to pump the new water into the back chamber to minimize future sandstorms.

Also, if i were to get a skimmer which chamber does it go in? Do I lose a pump chamber, cuz thatll rule it out for certain

Sorry. Was early when I read it. I know what base rock is- but I still need more live rock. I'm far below my quota
