Live Rock Question, of a different sorts..

Didn't want to Hijack the other liverock question thread, so here goes.

I am going to be setting up a 55 gal sw this weekend, with rock (pref live).

The main inhabitant of the tank will be a snowflake moray, and whatever cleaning crew I can find that he wont eat.

I want liverock not so much for filteration, as for looks / 'terrain' for the eel.

In the other post, dead rock (base rock) was mentioned. Where do you get this? I don't think I have ever seen any at the LFS Down here (North Little Rock / Jacksonville area, if anyone knows of any)??

My setup so far consists of a 55 gal long, a Hagan Fluval 304 canister filter, skimmer / powerfilter combo (Cant remember the name?, and a few powerheads.

www.hirocks.com has base rock for a reasonable price. Ebay has some too. I was really happy with hirocks.com

I second the hirocks.com recommendation. It's relatively dense and of course, you can't cherry pick pieces, but I was very happy with my 2 orders. It looks great. It will become LR over time and with a donation of coralline shavings from a LFS or an AA member, you could have the look of expensive LR in about a year.

Thatfishplace.com has a sale on 50 pounds of base rock (Carib Sea) for 39.99 +shipping.

I used this as my base rock.
