live rock
 
I have all of my equipment and am ready to start looking for LR - I've found some at themarinecenter.com for 2.99# plus $10 shipping to my Dallas home.

This is significantly cheaper than anywhere else - am I heading to disaster...has anyone bought from these people and had any luck? Or, is it infested with the "baddies" of the LR world? 8O

They sell nice stuff. YOu cannot beat tht price especially the shipping I would go for it.

If you look around here you won't see a shortage of people cheering for liverocks.com. They have a very good reputation for minimal die off and abundant life. I'm personally going to try them out next week. I'd suggest finding people that have purchased rock from themarinecenter.com and seeing what they thought of it.

Personally I had a terrible experience with Liveaquaria.com the rock is really nice, but I dont' think there is a single microb of life on those rocks. No worms, no pods, zilch. Oh well at least I can seed them. Good luck

For $10 shipping, why not just order a small bit and see what you think. Is it Fiji rock or FL aquacultured rock?

I have gotten rock from liveaquaria, floridaliverock.com and liverocks.com. All was good. I got the most crabs and snails with the liverocks.com rock but I got more coralline algae and even plants on he rock from floridaliverock.com They came in the same box too :)

A friend of mine has reported tons of life on the fiji rock she got from premium aquatics. She has seen pods, crabs etc. I don't think my fiji rock had hardly anything on it except coralline algae. We are in IN so premium aquatics ships 1 day UPS ground.

I like the diversity I have with my rock :)

dodge marinedepot to their fiji rock was lifeless!!

ellisz 01-21-2004 03:01 PM

I will add that I did start seeing some worms extending from the rock to the sand and some other types of growth on my fiji after awhile, so it was not really lifeless. I just did not get any crabs, snails or starfish on it.

The FL rock is definately better in that respect. My fiji rock was covered in purple algae though.
