reefrocks.net has some great dry rock and the price is definitely right. The guy will most likely even call you to ask what kind of scape you want to make before he ships it, but if you have specifics you can call him and he will accommodate you.

His sand is great too... real carribean argonite collected in the Bahamas, and it is FREE. He sells it for the cost of shipping (~$15 for a 40lb large priority mail box).

He ships via FEDEX home delivery, which took 4 days to Chicago. I would imagine you would have it in a couple of days.

Sorry, I know it looks like an Ad for the guy, but he does great work. My only complaint would be that he takes a few days before he ships, but it is worth the wait. I think with your 30 lbs you already have, 50lbs will be more than enough.

This is 50lbs of his rock in my 57 gal tank:

Fort, that was exactly what i needed, thanks so much man! Ill DEFINITLY buy.

So, if this sand 15$ and i can add it to my rock purchase? Would it mix in well with my 50 lbs of PFS?

That I can't tell you. I am new to SW and didn't even know you could use PFS in a salt tank.

The sand ships separately from the rock.

I can tell you that I didn't rinse it at all and it did not cloud my tank in the slightest and I just dumped it in with a cup. I have diatoms right now as it is a new tank so the photo doesn't do it justice but the sand is like sugar it is so fine and white.

Cool! Thanks fort and adam!

Im hoping it will mix well, im not sure if i should purchase or not. Well see, it should work.

Diatoms..hate em! We all go through it though. The sand does look good regardless.
