ok here is the scoop:
I can get live rock shipped to my local airport through www.themarinecenter.com
at 2.99 a lb for premium fiji lr
or 3.99 for xl fiji lr
. The shipping is dependent on the carrier approx. $40-60 for the first 100 lbs. not sure how much a lb. after that yet b/c i cannot get intouch with them over the phone.
I can get lr
shipped to my local airport through www.exoticfish.com
for 2.75 for ultra premium and 2.25 for premium fiji. but they ship it to los angelos from the islands then take it out of its boxes then find another carrier to bring it to texas, ??too much time wasted??. there shipping cost is 65 for the first 100 lbs then .65 per lb after that.
im gonna order either 3 45lb boxes or 4 45lb boxes. i am going to get 120lbs of base rock from www.hirocks.com
. this is going into a 180 gal
