    haha, seems like everyone's wanting live rock recently. But, like all the other posts, you should try looking into getting some dry rock online. Check out some very recent posts for more info...

    By the way, are you new to the CF/Waterloo area?

    If you're confused, here's Marco Rock's website and the eco rock is off of Bulk Reef Supply's site. I would also highly recommend getting dry rock and seeding it with some live sand or live rock.

    The only place I know around here to get good cured live rock is a small store in Manchester called The Fish Shack, its around 30 minutes from Waterloo but I think its worth it. I have bought about 50lb of Live Rock from him over the last few months and have been very happy with it. He only sells cured rock and you can pick what you want and at $5 a lb I figured that was a pretty good deal. Best part was I never had any cycling with it. After 3 weeks of no ammonia or nitrites I figured virtually nothing died off.

    I just got some of the dry pukani eco rox from Bulk Reef Supply - needed to add a little more to my existing tank.  Amazing stuff.  Granted it doesn't have any coralline algae yet, but very porous and interesting shapes.  3 large rocks with lots of holes for placing coral plugs.  And because its dry you aren't paying for water weight.  The three rocks were a total of 15 pounds.  The stuff is $3.00/pound.  Last month was an even better deal, as they shipped for free.  Also, BRS is in Minnesota - so that's pretty local.
