it's all the same rock from the same places that other stores buy it. if you like the price and the pieces are light and porous, then i would buy it.

I second what X said, but I just want to add in that look at the tank. The petco tanks near me are full of bad algae...I asked them why and they only responded with "Well, we just open up the tanks and shake it off once and awhile".

Though I have bought LR from that same petco. Just not from the bright red tanks...

bright red is just cyano. that can be corrected pretty easily.
