You are correct in the fact that SW tanks are a bit more difficult then FW. However, the reward is greater as well. I would strongly encourage you to order from liverocks.com. It is all acu-cultured and none of it is taken from natural reefs. Please leave the beautiful reefs in your state alone. Harvesting from the wild only damages the reef we try to protect. As aquarists, it is our responsibility to promote as much acu-cultured products as we can and buy them when ever we can. Lets be honest, the rocks you would take for your tank are much more enjoyable and benifical in the ocean. have fun with the set up! Lando

(not to mention that i feel a bit silly ordering stuff that grow naturally here!).
There are only two organizations who are allowed to collect rock from the reefs of Hawaii, both are public aquariums.
