I guess it is probally different, as everybody in the UK uses LR, as using LR you cycle pretty quickly also.

Even if you are doing baserock, I would still get a couple of kilo's of LR to seed the baserock

Yeah, were saving up for live rock. Hey, so do you think we should find a good 2$/lb deal and buy all live? Or if we cant, go all base rock, glue it all together outside the tank, and get a little bit of live to seed it?

To be honest, I'd still go base rock even if I found live rock for 1.50 lb

If the live rock is good, and really that cheap, I would buy it all. IMO there's too many good things that overcome the hitchhikers. In pa, 2$ is unheard of lol. Just check the rock to see of there's any hitch ad stuff on it before you take it home.
