I've seen allot of videos on making DIY live rock. Looks really cool, I'll probly try it soon, after we move to a bigger place I wanna get a bigger tank.
For this tank I bought two pieces at my lfs
, and I picked up 30# from craigslist. Really sweet deal. I saw the guys tank and it all looked great. I had the rock in my 36g with just damselfish for a month before I setup the 50g. I had some hitchhikers, but there were good ones, couple of tiny stars, two little brittle stars, and a handful of snails and crabs, the piece I bought at petco came with a worm ;-(. But thankfully I was able to isolate him in the small tank Before I added it to the big one. I add red sea coraline grow about twice a week and the rocks are finally picking up the algea from the lfs
seed rock. I heard the DIY live rocks take a few months to cure...
