Where to buy Live Rock online

I'm cycling my tank now, and want to add live rock, any good stores online that have good rock, preferably less expensive, but I want a lot of colors and bigger pieces.

Any websites? or comments on what quality rock you did get?

I just wanted to update this, I ended up surfing around this site more instead of just the forum, very impressed!

I ended up going with http://www.liverocknreef.com lots of choices with size and shapes along with lots of different colors and surprises on the rocks!

125 gal
180 lbs lr
30 gal sump/ refugium
3x 150w metal halide/2x39w and 2x24w t5 actinic

I use Base Rock and a little LR from my LFS. This keeps way down on the cost.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

Primium fiji live rock for $2.66/lb (120/45lb box) is really freakin cheap, and $1.80/lb fiji base rock is pretty good too. One of the LFS near me sells the primium live rock for $10/lb.

I love my live rock that I bought (cured) on http://www.intmarinefish.com/liverock.html! I got 60 lbs for about $200. If you choose to buy from there, make sure you email them and let them know what kind of sizes, shapes, colors, etc you want! I wanted shelf-like pieces and now I am able to make some amazing caves with the rock they sent.
