Probably not necessary for this thread, but the Petsmart sells live"rock" by me. It's not even rock! It's apparently epoxy or plastic rock with algae on it, and its like 30 bucks for a branch like piece.

Ok.. so not to be a buzzkill here or anything.. but first of all.. 22lbs for 90$ is quite ridiculous.. and not in the good way. For 10 more dollars($100), you could have gotten 45lbs of fiji live rock shipped. And for 100 dollars more, you could have gotten 90lbs. Making sense? Not putting anyone down.. but dhemp.. you bought this live rock from petco or petsmart? That is way overpriced IMO. Online would have been a buttload cheaper.. even getting it shipped.

pp5, that is what i was trying to say in the first place. These pet store chains are complete rip-offs. They want to sell live rock for an outrageous price.. and it isn't even rock.. So sad..
