I think you can find some deals out there if you know where to look.
Agreed that live rock is coming from the same wholesalers. It's been my experience that live rock from the LFS
hasn't been sitting on my doorstep or in transit for hours. The rock from the LFS
has been siting in tubs with heaters and circulation right before someone decides to pick it up.
Obviously not all LFS
' are created equal and your mileage may vary. I would rather see what i'm getting and take it home instantly than hope for the best when it gets delivered. It just depends on what you feel is "fresher". I'd rather buy from my LFS
