I paid 35 lbs @ $2 and 25 lbs @ $8. I want to add another 30 lbs. I checked with another lfs
here and they are selling @ 5.75;
The live rock from liveaquaria seems to me lot cheaper than this even after factoring in the shipping cost. What do you guys suggest? Also I see different kinds of rocks in that website. Is there a specific type I should go for?
I don't mean to hijack your Thread, but I was getting ready to post a Live Rock Inquiry also, and maybe we can both get our ?'s answered...
I wasn't happy with the selection or quality of the LFS LR
@ about $6.00/lb so I'm also looking at LiveAquaria.Com which many people on here seem to recommend.
Here is what I was considering for my 46 Gal
Fiji Foundation Rock - 35 lb. Box @ $59.99 http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...fm?pCatId=2391
Select Fiji Premium Rock - 22 lb. Box @ $79.99 http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=397
Tonga Branch Live Rock - 24 lb. Box @ $89.99 http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...cfm?pCatId=401
Which will give about 80 Lbs total in my 46 Gal
(which is maybe on the upper side, but that's OK), and Still costs barely over $4/lb total (base and LR
Any opinions on this combo of Rocks?
