live rock big or small?

live rock big or small?

i have just been looking at my live rock and been thinking thats its all pretty large, and had a thought that i could 'smash' it down to smaller sizes and then i might be able to make a rock scape easier and it would look more natural? i would also be able to fit more live rock in, so more filtration!

what do you guys think of this idea? has anybody tried it? does it look good?

thanx andrew

I think it is possible, but you will be making LR into 1/2 LR and 1/2 (or more) base rock, it is also difficult to predict just how it will break.
