always does lol I look at my other tank and the amount of rock and coral that I have it in it and it shocks me to think how little it started with..

Im trying to find some nice rock outta local reefers tanks (a lot cheaper than uncured store rock) got most of this rock from a local reefer right out of his display tank for $2/lb so im pretty happy with it so far but yes I want more.

This rock is also loaded with feather dusters and pods which is a great start to my system.

Calgary, Canada hard to find good rock here other than from reefers, most of the stuff i stores here has very little life on it and is almost always completely white I have seen a few nice rocks and I try and grab them when I can but never had one hitch hiker off those rocks yet. and at 9-10$/lb its not worth it to me when I can watch the local reef forums for deals and steals.

I normally just watch for deals through the local reef club, get some nice rock that way with lots of life.
