Question Live Rock

I just set up my new 65 gallon with live sand and some live rock. I am doing no fish cycle with shrimp. The live rock cost more than the fish or so it seems at my LFS. I only got 25 lbs and need much more. It looks like marine depot has a good deal on their live rock, has anyone ever bought from them? I am still in the cycle so if there is a spike it is not a big deal. Looks like I can get 52 lbs for about 170.00 with shipping(alot less than 12.99 per lb). It is less than my LFS but if it is not good rock still 170 down the drain.

I bought dead rock from reefrocks.net and cycled my 75 gallon with 20 gallon long in 8 days. Thatfishplace.com is a pretty good place for live rock the price includes shipping

dry rock

I have seen dry live rock at bulk reef supply. I thought that rock had to stay wet to be live. It has good reviews, has anyone ever used dry live rock? I know it looks like it would be cheaper. Thanks for any help!!!
