Okay so im in the process of setting up my 70......waiting on christmas (RO unit coming from santa) but I asked my lfs about a piece of rock today.........its 40 lbs...at 6 bucks a pound. and he will cut me a deal from 240 to 200. I said JESUS CHRIST!!!!!! I cant pay 200 bucks for ONE rock. So im looking into buying this dry base rock and keeping the rest of what I have.....OR buying from petco a piece here and a piece there......its pretty nice rock and I got a 15lb rock for 25 bucks...I was looking at this base rock too.... http://www.marinedepot.com/ps_ViewItem~ ... ndor~.html
Check on craigslist.com. People who have really nice set-ups and don't want them anymore post everything there, and it's local so you don't have to worry about shipping. I got more than 100 pounds of live rock from a guy for 40 bucks!!!
im been checking craigslist..everyone thats selling it is selling it for obscene amounts. One guy in town is trying to sell it for 10 bucks a lb.....Ill probably just hit petco....its next to my work and the fish supervisor loves me there. Maybe she will order me some large pieces.
yeah i definably agree. here what i do is look in the traders in the paper. and find people selling tanks etc ask if they would separate rock, and offer them a pound or kilo value. once they do the sums they think fuck more money and separate the rock from the rest
