Bulkreefsupply.con and drsfosterandsmith.com both sell dry and live rock. Bulk seems to be pretty cheap though.

Wow, that's a steal. Watch the quality though. I have 1 LFS in my area that sorts the LR by quality; $4/lb for low, $7 for mid, and $10 for high. There is definitely a difference because I bought some of each and the low quality was not as porous and it has taken a long time for the Coraline algae to grow on it. Also, the more expensive rock had a ton of tiny polyp creatures all over it and the Coraline grew like crazy on it. I'd say overall it's just more alive and mature rock with a lot of holes in it and no aptasia or harmful creatures.

They are cool, but I'm pretty sure theyre aggressive. I don't think that they are reef safe either but could be wrong

They are reef safe, but without sufficiant good they could start to nip a little bit. Can keep with other crabs, and could eat small fish. Lol i did some research, they are still cool tho

My rock is all on sand. When you look under the tank all you see is sand.

Make sure you check craigslist for LR. You would be surprised what you find. And its always cheaper
