Most people like marcorocks.com or craigslist from what I know.

If you use the live rock from your established tank you can just fill in the rest with base rock which is usally about $2.50 a lb versus live rock which tops $8 a lb some places.

I got all my base rock from ReefCleaners.org | Clean Up Crews and Macro Algae and have been very satisfied with the quality and the overall company. You can even email them what types and sizes you want and they will hook you up. I think it's now $105 for 50lbs with free delivery.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
