Thats pretty cool, but I enjoy the excitement of hitchhikers so I think I am going to stick with my lfs
. I didn't know it was that good of a buy!
You enjoy the hitchikers until you come across isopods, various types of algae, fire worms, spider crabs, gorilla crabs etc... then you won't enjoy it as much. But really, you already have 25lbs you don't want to put any more than 20-more pounds TOPS. Its best to leave room for corals to grow and to have good flow with no dead spots. Is there a minimum of the base rock you have to buy for $1.49? If not, then I'd go with about 15lbs of a good quality porous not dense, base rock. But if you have to buy a minimum amount of base rock then the price could almost be the same as buying 15lbs of live rock.
