The color yes that is a difference but it's also the shapes of the pieces, that being said some LFS will sell very ugly liverock, the baserock is sometimes much much nicer. Here is a picture with both baserock and liverock.

The two middle pieces on the bottom are baserock, porous and nice yes but not much for nice shape. The rest are branching and really neat liverock. Usually easier to find nice pieces to stack for tunnels and such.

Here is another pic of the left side of the tank

The Tall vertical piece is baserock, i like this piece personally. The long narrow baserock pieces are perfect for standing upright or for placing across two others to make a tunnel. I'd ask for quite a few of these in your order if you still can. Again the piece to the right of the baserock is live, really neat shape again.

It's really all about personal preference : )

Just received the base rock today nice looking pieces! I'll post a picture later.

The tank water has stabilized, amm 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 10. I'm sure the rock will mess something up lol

Might make the water harder or the ph drop/rise or something? I don't know but I feel it.

I'll have to put mine in slow.
Or I might just put it all in and then pull the old rocks out slowly. Like 1 or 2 a day or something.. so I keep the bacteria.

Why dont you just cover the rocks you don't like, put them on the bottom of the other new rocks. it's a shame to waste all that LR

Here's my "rock tank"



I bet the fishies are really loving it.
I'm wondering if my tank will hold the ~90lbs of rock and ~60 pounds of sand until I can start pulling some rocks out.

This rock is really nice! The white really makes the tank pop.
