Id say go around 150 pounds, but honestly better getting dry rock with thats size tank. More likely gonna pay 4-6 bucks per pound live as to 2-3 bucks dry. I used about 50 pounds in my 55, 20 lb live to seed. I order my dry rock from The Reef Rock Store cheapest ive found with free shipping on order 30lbs and more. Very nice site, told em the tank size and exchanged few emails about what i was shooting for and they gave me some good looking rock.

Dont be Wasteful is what I was always told, Got a dead fish? Get the Frying Pan Baby!

you can use dry rock for the base and then go over it with the live rock so you won't need as much. Figi is great you can use tonga, marshall island there all good stuff
