Question Base Rock Question?

Hey everyone I wanted to know what it means when your ordering Base Rock and it says Box 45# or 65# now does that mean 45LBs or 65LBs... Just wondering I was on www.marcorocks.com and saw that just wondering what that means? Oh and he's got awesome deals right now.... .89LB for Base Rock....

Yes, the # is short for pounds. I hear really good things about marcorocks, you won't be sorry with it.

Don't forget to cure that rock outside of your tank. I've heard that their base rock often contains a lot of dead matter that re-hydrates and then decays in the tank.

Cool.... Will do once arrives..... But real quick the base rock i got from my LFS bleach there base rock to kill off any waste thats left.... LFS store guy told me 2 put it in salt water for 48 hrs and then i should be fine to add... and it's been 2 weeks since I have added it to my tank and no issues with my water levels..... Fish are still in a Very healthy state..... But i sure will cure these once they come in and I will post pics with the progress...

Um... If you haven't gotten your product that you haven't gotten in 2 in a half months I would be asking for my Money Back by now it really wouldn't be worth waiting.... Especially if it's Shipping UPS usally should take 7-10 business days to get in and if he's is giving you the run around I bet he never had any to begin with and is hoping that some will show up one day.... Thats bad business if he's having customers wait 2 1/2 months for there product to be shipped out.... I do Customer Service and I understand customer rights.... IF your experiencing issues with him shipping your Fiji Rock.... Then you shouldn't sit there and wait 2 1/2 months for it... Sorry that just upset me....
