I'll be honest, that price doesn't suprise me. I look at it as acceptable only if you really like a singular piece of rock. I've paid that for a great piece of fiji to add to my setup.

Fiji around here is generally 7-10/lb and its good looking rock! I would pay it if there was a certain large peice that I loved, but just for regular LR...no sir-eee

I went to petco 1 day they had some lr there. only thing was they wanted 27.99 for what they called a large piece of rock they do not go by weight. I had them weigh it anyway just to see how much of a rip off it was and it weighed 1.873 pounds. Unbelievable.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
that fixture will be fine for lps. it's just not as efficient as others. you can do the same job with less wattage is all.
now you have to get a good camera and post some pics!

BTW, algae is a nutrient issue. I would be doing water changes with good source water (R.O.D.I.) to combat it, not adding more eating, pooping, critters.

lol, a guy in toronto giving a pittsburgh guy directions in pittsburgh...just sounds odd to me.

Jason, hit up the regional forums. There is a threat about fish stores in PA. We were just talking about the ones around Pittsburgh.
