Live rock help!

Am setting up a 55 gallon tank and I am in need of live rock. Im not really sure where to start with buying rock. I am hoping someone can help me with choosing a nice and preferable cheap type of rock for my fish tank. I only plan on having a lionfish with a snowflake eel and no corals.

Your best bet then would be to get about 10lbs live rock and about 50lbs base/lace rock more of either if you'd like...lace rock is easy to come by usually just call around to some pet stores but the live rock could prove to be a bit harder to come by unless you order it. You can always check Craigslist for people downsizing or getting out of the hobby for really good prices sometimes.

+1 on Craigslist. Plus- Florida rock is pretty cheap. It does come with a lot of hitchikers though.

I looked around and found this website http://www.marcorocks.com/packagescombos.aspx pretty cool because they has packages with dry and live rock for a pretty good price! I never really knew dry rock could essentially be turned into live rock.
