the general rule is 1 1/2 pounds per gallon if its good porus rock like fiji, marshall island, tonga if its dense rock then you'll need two pounds per gallon

The first pic is new reefrocks rocks not "live" yet. Second pic is same batch of rocks in my DT with Zoas on top. Also the sand in the first pic in the tubs is the free ($15 shipping) sand from reefrocks.

I ordered my base rock off of Amazon for two bucks a pound
Where on Amazon? Everywhere I have looked is sooo expensive...

(Price + shipping cost)/total rock = price per pound.

Example: (the price is $90 + shipping is free)/ this is for 40# of rock. The price per pound would be $2.25

Or (90+0)/40=2.25

When I ordered my 50 pounds it came out to about $1.70 it depends on which seller you pick and their prices.
