Your LFS (local fish store) is the best place to go. You will get the least amount of die off while transporting it. There are also online vendors like, liveaquaria that will ship it to you. You could also just buy dry rock and cure it yourself. Check our articles section on how to do this.

You can buy LR at your LFS or order on line. You could also get base rock from both sources. BR is rock that eventually will become live and is cheaper to buy. Read this for other equipment needs.
