Hey guys,

I have found a new store, or maybe just new to me. It is called Life Oceanic. They are located at 10909 US HWY 41 South, Gibsonton, FL 33534, 649-1000. The owners are Joe and Sharron, really nice people.

I was in there and they have some great live rock from Bali in there. Here are a few pictures of the rock I just bought for my prop tank I just started. I am going to use some of the sand and LR to seed my 90 and I am in the process of gathering stuff for. So while I am in the process of building a stand and canopy(which I haven't started) along with all the other necessary components, I have decided to start a prop tank to get things going and growing. Once it is up for a little I will be asking for some frags, so please keep me in mind if anyone is planning a frag swap or is looking to trim down their livestock. Anyway here are some pictures of what I bought. O yeah, lots of good critters, some pods, I noticed on the rock this morning along with some other corals, tubes and other stuff was on there. Here it is ....

Here is a couple of rocks...

I know these pictures do not do it justice, but I swear this is some nice rock. It was $8.99 per pound. They also have Bali shelf rock and Walt Smith Fiji for $2.99 per pound. Thats right $2.99 per pound in the store.

PS sorry for the poor picture quality, I have never claimed to be a photograher.

Yeah I agree, he is actually an owner who will talk to you and help out and make suggestions without having to ask for help. He just offers it. I will be a return customer.

Well I figured I would let it seed my tank since it had awesome growth on it and looked way to good to pass up. When I take a look at the tank I notice something new. GREAT ROCK.

Hey chrismhaase, I was in there last week and the Bali rock is getting a little low, I'm waiting on a new shippment so I can go get more, I got a rock with brain coral on it from the last shippment!

Good stuff and good luck finding Bali rock anywhere else, it's real light too for those interested in that kind of thing.

chrismhaase, you have any blue color on yours ? I have tons of blue appearing more and more each week.

Don Lino, I think he's trying to say that "Reef Central" is about reefing. We all have times when we get caught up "personally" in a LFS, but don't bring it here with you.
