Tonga Live Rock?

I got an email from a vendor saying they had limited quantities of Tonga Live Rock. They said it has been off the market for about 9 years and they are now allowed to import it again.

Is it really all it is built up to be? If I am just now building my tank, should consider Tonga over Fiji? Maybe a mix?

It has a different look to it, but I am not sure I like it that much more for the price. It is light, so if you buy by the pound, you get more.

The more sources you get your rock from the more biodiversity you will get. I think tonga looks great as an addition, but a tank full of it would look a bit odd IMO.
