Some of us live out in the boonhicks where they think your smoking something if you talk of live rock. Seriouslly for me local places will charge upward to $10/lb for stuff that looks awful. Compair that to the little effort that it takes to cure your own rock and buying uncured rock and curing it yourself is very attractive. Plus you have total control over the curing process. Most LFS
's do not monitor the ammonia levels in their curing tanks and from what I hear of LFS
employees that have visited this forum most LFS
's dont even have seperate vats for cured rock vs new rock that is uncured.
Now if your in an area that truly has a good and respectable LFS
then you should feel very lucky.
