Mixing types of Live Rock?

I have some Fiji LR and I was wondering if mixing it with some LR from the Key's would cause any problems. Any ideas?

Actually some people think it is beneficial to mix LR from different locations. This assures you have a good diversity of life introduced into the tank from the LR.

Yes Mix LR. It makes a better tank IMO. Gives the tank more diversity. I have Gulf Rock, and Figi Rock in my tank.

fgo ahead and mix it up. I have over 120 lbs in my tank. Some of it is fiji from a LFS, some is "carribian" from another LFS and some is Keys from liverocks.com.

I've got two types in mine right now, planning on adding some keys to the mix whenever I get around to it.

I was planning on ordering LR from a couple places and maybe pick up a few lbs from my lfs.

Only problem in doing so is it would cost more $$$.
