From your own personal or friend's experiences, where's the best place to buy live rock?
I can't afford to buy a lot at once, I'm going to buy a little at a time.
I have a 35 gallon plexiglas hex aquarium. I plan on moving up to a 125 gallon once the cowfish and snowflake eel get bigger. But right now they're tiny so that's a couple years off.
Lastly, I realize the cowfish will probably nibble on things, so I'm not going to be looking for any coral or shrimp or crabs specifically, just some things I can place strategically so he can't get at them easily, you know, with some algae, some polyps, and other misc live things on it to brighten/liven up the tank more and make it look more natural and interesting for them and me.
Right now the tank only has some lava base rock at the bottom for the eel to hide under. But it's a nice base to place other live rock on.
Or would I be better off going to the LFS
and picking out some base or live rock?
Any comments and suggestions appreciated, thanks in advance.
