I looked at reefcleaners and it seems reasonable, it will only be 47$ compared to my lfs where it would be about 100$. They live will be about 70$.... For 7 pounds, is that ridiculous or am I being too picky?

On a side note...
Im going to be buying base Rock soon. I'm going to do about 3/4 br, and 1/4 lr... Where can I find good base rock? My lfs is too overpriced.
Haha yeah low budget.. Lots of lawns to mow mine will be a set up 30 gallon reef by Christmas! and I'll be doing 1/4 LR 3/4 base rock. And I'll also have an aquaclear 70 refugium!

I decided not to go with a refugium right now.. Just don't really need it, I might in the future though. Okay thats what i thought, it is crazy. And I do have a list.. 1 perc, 1-2 cardinals ( I'm thinking bangaii atm but maybe pajama), royal gramma or hawkfish, and maybe something else.. Plus my cleanup crew which will have a conch. Sound okay or under/ over stocked?

I bought my base rock off eBay. Got free shipping and 50 lbs of base for eighty odd bucks. Just over 1.75 a pounds. I paid alot for my live but I went with what just hit the market and had zero die odd. Great packaging too.

Sounds cool! You can get an aquaclear 70 for 40$ on amazon and modify it into a refugium!!!(thats what I'm doing) If your interested just google aquaclear refugium mod.

Oh cool I'll check it out.. I would have to use it once it's cycled, right? And I will check out eBay then because it's 2.30 on reefcleaners lol. Thanks for all the great replies, they help soo much
