Here is another question..
I have a 75 gal tank, how much rock should I get? I have read in different places that you should have about 1.5-2 pounds of rock for every gallon you have. BRS says to have 1 lv for every gallon...
From both of these sites, a hundred pounds of rock is $232 free shipping.. Bulk reef supply sells their rock by the pound which seems to me better suited if I need to go with 75 lbs.

75 pounds or more. as much as you can fit in the tank and it still be pleasing to the eye, and also manage very little to no dead spots (areas void of flow).
keeping good water movement is important for the rock to be able to filter efficiently, as well as keep the entire tank healthy. you don't want uneaten food and fish poop collecting in a corner somewhere.
