I made a purchase of 50 lbs of base rock from Marcos which by the way was a smart move. Very beautiful base rock. But this question is for people who have purchased from there. I was wondering if the same amount of marcos base rock was equivalent to the amount of live rock you recieved. 50 lbs Live Rock = 50 lbs Base Rock or is the live rock heavier than base and if I order 50 lbs of live rock should I expect the same amount of rocks as the base rock or a lesser amount b/c of weight.
And the more porus rock from marcosrocks accepts the good stuff live rock that leans on it.
I put in 50lb of Marco Rock, the just bought 3 pieces of live rock (about 15 lbs) and leaned them against the base rock. within 3 months, all the color and life spread to the base rock. And this base rock has so much more holes, it looks a lot nicer then the purchased live rock.
