tampa bay saltwater live rock

greetings all, i have heard plenty good about liverocks.com here, but any experiences with tampa bay saltwater lr? i am waiting for the weather to warm up to add some florida cultured lr as I already have 50lb fiji / tonga in a 45g. this lr looks very appealing and teeming with life. there's even a cool video on the home page about the aquaculturing of their lr. check it out...

tnier,
can you recommend anyone else for florida aquacultured lr then?

it is a lr holding facility, i wouldn't expect it to be pristine in the store...

Not to jump the gun or anything but negative first posts are usually the sign of a troll. Call me mean spirited or pessimistic or whatever. Just talking from experience.

I have heard nothing but praises from everyone else who has done business with these guys. Hard to believe that someone has had an experience on the opposite end of the spectrum. Is it possible, sure? But not probable...

Same here about TBS...

If you can't get it from them, you can get good FALR from liverocks.com

Ive never seen any lr form tampa bay saltwater that didnt look GREAT. my lfs just ordered around 100lbs to put in a custom home tank and the newest batch i saw was the best lr i think i have ever seen period! Hopefully you just stopped by at a bad time because if not we all should be greatly saddened
