Hi jake. I bought like 100 pounds of the stuff from reefrocks (ended up getting 150 pounds...lol) and they say it is argonite based reefrocks. All three pictures are the same type of rock.

In my 66 gallon the large arch in the middle was alot higher, but my darn engineer goby deided to build a mountain of sand there so the elevation isnt as much. If i flattened out all the sand in that area it would look cooler, but i would have a pissed off engineer. Lol

Ohh alright. I'm planning on buying dry base rock instead of live because its way cheaper. I like the look of those rocks

Not only that, base rock looks much more nice! All Fiji live rock I've seen looks like blocks.
