Hey, thanks a lot Rocket! I appreciate your kind words. the pistol/goby combo is awesome. Very funny! They are out several times a day. my 25 lb order came to about $6.25 a pound with shipping. I am sure it will better then anything here. LR runs $8 to $12 around here. There is one shop that have really nice "carribbian" rock with sponges, algea, mussells and such on it but it is the $12 a pound stuff.

For a 37 gallon tank, I'd probably for for 50-60lbs. I thought 40lbs in my 40gallon was gonna be alot.
well, my photo in my sig shows the tank with 50lbs of LR...and it still could use more (i have another 10lbs curing in a Q-tank right now)

What I got with my 40lb LR.com order was: 2 large rocks...probably 11 lbs each. 3 medium sized rocks..4lbs a piece...adn then 3 small rocks, and 2 really small rocks I'd call 'decorative' (smaller than fist sized)...but very interesting in shape (one looks like a big finger, and is definitely some ancient shell that calcified into what I have now)

My two main complaints about LR.com (and Zack never did address these except for trying to sell me more rock):

(1) wetwebmedia claims that due to the higher density of aquacultured atlantic rock its not as good for biological filtration. Zack told me that he would look for an answer to this but never got back to me.

(2) Shipping isn't perfect -- my LR.com rock arrived leaking all over the place (the leasing office in my apt complex that I met the delivery guy at was not happy) and the ammonia was through the roof for about 8-10 days.

Also due to the fact that a lot of the life in these rocks is from the atlantic its not exactly meant for aquariums that host life mostly from the pacific (wetwebmedia repeats this again and again)

Anyway other than that no big complaints about the rock. I've never ordered rock from anywhere else so I don't have much to compare it to.
