Where do I find excellent Live Rock?

I know I know, Liverocks.com

But I am also very interested in Fiji Live rock, Where would I go to find quality rock and live sand.

Thanks!
-Matt

I would say Liverocks.com and If not them then I would go with Liveaquaria.com They run a very good price and I believe their LR is on sale right now.. As for Livesand get it lcoally from other reefers as well as Liverocks.com I havent heard of anything good about and of the other stores that sell LS..

as you guessed it.....Liverocks.com, Liverocks.com, Liverocks.com!! Can I say this enough? AND they guys there are very very cool. Some of the nicest people you will ever talk to. I have spoken to Little and Big Mike from there and both are very helpful. Going to order some from them after their next harvest which I think last time I checked is going to be the middle of this month.

If your interested in Fiji rock then most of your sources will turn up equivlent rock. 99% of Fiji rock is imported by WaltSmith and 90% of that rock thats imported is out of the water for close to a week or more before it gets to your doorstep reguarless of how you have it shipped.

I agree about liverocks.com... but if you want to try something a little different they have Lalo rock on sale at liveaquaria.com here:

http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/p...=24&pCatId=876

But you're going to have to cure it for a while and stuff. liverocks rock needs very minimal curing (I just add it to the tank right away anyway)

curing doesnt really bother me. I plan on going slow anyway. Lalo rock looks terrific! but how does their "accual" shipped rock look?

30 lbs would be good for a 37 gallon tank I think, but what would you suggest?

I have never seen it in person.. have heard that is is lighter and more porous than other types.. which would be IMO a good thing.

Give us some pics if you get it
