I haven't seen the texas holey rock but if you want some good base rock then try hirock.com , they have some good stuff. I have ordered from them twice. The first time I really didn't know what I was getting and it was really too large for my tank (hammer took care of that), and now since I'm setting up the big tank I ordered some more to use as base rocks.

If you're not convinced that LR is important, pick up a few good marine books:
The Conscientious Marine Aquariast by Fenner,
and
The New Marine Aquarium.

Both basically talk about how the addition of LR in the hobby has allowed species to be kept in captivity that never survived before.
Why? Because the LR is a huge part of their environment...visually and functionally. It makes them feel secure about surroundings, gives some a place to 'nest', as well as providing ideal bio-filtration.

LR is expensive...and probably the hardest part of a FOWLR setup to stomach, cost wise.

Welcome to AA!! Glad to have you in the forum. I will just reitterate what everyone else said. Rick is wrong...the more LR the better. It plays a very important role in biological filtration. UGF is a negative. Go with live sand on the bottom. Get a couple good books and read, read, read. Develope a plan before you start. FO, FOWLR, reef and start to put together a fish wish list. Your stand looks great, can not wait to see the finished product. Good luck and enjoy...Lando
