lights would help your rock but is not necessary for bio-filtration, bacteria doesnt really need light. personally, if i were going to spend the money for premium rock and had a little extra money i would go with some power compacts at least. some people are converting to t-5 lighting and ive heard its pretty affordable.

Would higher-grade lighting increase the Rock`s efficiency as a bio-filter?
Not that I know of. One case I can think of is if you happen to get a coral, by accident that would need higher lighting requirements.

If so---is it enough of an improvement to warrant the investment?
Not really, if you are looking to save some money. It might be better to save up and upgrade when you can.

Quote:
Would there be pre-existing organisms on the purchased Live Rock that would be brought out more (or simply survive!) if I used higher-grade lighting?
Possibly, as I said before, but I would tend to think that would be a lucky and rare find. I am sure there are some critters that would like it, but I don't think it is critical.

Can you give me some places to find that "premium rock"?

I am most interested in the Tonga Lalo and Deep-Water. I`d probably get some Cheaper Fiji for the base-rock.

Thanks for your input.
