I bought my carib rock from the same website and I am very pleased with the amount of life in it already after two weeks.

What I DID I added 45lbs from dr fosters smith, ok rock cant beat the price. Then I went to My LFS and bought 10lbs from them, Then I bought 15lbs from some guy. My point is its a good idea to get your rock, sand from different places, more bio-diversity that way.
