330l is 87g, and recommended amount of rock for a reef is about 1.5 to 2 pounds per gallon, so about 130 to 175 lbs.

For a 330L (87g) tank I would probably go either 50 /50 or a 60 / 40 split of base / live rock.

anywhere from 45lbs base & 45lbs live up to 86lbs base & 86lbs live (50/50) split at anywhere between 1-2lbs of rock in total. Live rock is really expensive (for the good quality stuff).
