Setting up a new tank (350g) live rock@ C$10/lb = $3500. To keep costs down want to build on a formed structure. Any ideas?

Canada is a big place, where is Cold Lake. It might be cheaper to fly down to Florida and choose your own live rock. Or go across the border if you are close enough and get some from a lfs You are allowed $35 if you go across for the day and more if you spend acouple of nights. there is no problem in taking lr across.
the price on the dollar is 1.30 the going rate is or has been around 6.99 a lb so I guess it is about par for you.

merged the two posts so all the responses would be in the same thread.

How far is Cold Lake from the nearest airport? Closer to Edmonton or Calgary? You may wish to call <<J&L Aquatics>> in Vancouver. Your looking at about $0.67/lb for shipping when ordering over 3 baxes (50lb ea) and the rock itself ranges from $4.00-6.00/lb depending on the type... The more you buy, the cheaper the deal you may be able to get.

You can also look into <<HiRocks>> base rock to cut down on the cost some more. Shipping rates vary but it may be an option and they do ship to Canada...
