OK, I get the concept of seeding base rock with a few pounds of live rock. Problem is, where do you get 3-10 lbs of live rock?
The stuff at the LFS
looks just about like my current rocks, which have very little of the life I see advertized on internet sites. I also assume that the LR
from the LFS
is less likely to have interesting hitch hikers, since it's been sitting in his curing vat for an unknown amount of time.
Internet sites all seem to sell packages of 25 lbs or more. And while there are people selling it by the pound on ebay, I'd rather deal with someone I know is reputible.
So, is there any on-line stores that sell small quantities of LR
? Should I just go through the LFS
and hope it looks better after I re-cure it?
