Hmm. I've been searching Craigslist. Picking up 40 lbs of dry rock for 15$. But other than that- they either want 5$ a lb or aren't selling their tanks and stock separately. The wall projects (water walls for the gulf) has some nice rock. My husband dives out there and there's always some form of growth on it. I'm still debating though. Can't beat free! Lol

Set up so far.

My buddy is coming over to do his magic on my rockwork. The man can create a cave system that makes the mammoth caves look like armature work. Lol

Lol jk.
Lmao. Nah. I'm just too broke now to buy 300lbs of live rock. Figure I'll be taking my time adding to the two sides until they meet in the middle!
