Live Rock?


New member
I have a Red Sea Max 170 (45 gal)

I am looking to get live rock. Checked Tampabay saltwater and I heard this is the best rock.

I am thinking of getting the rock but 90lbs of rock seems like too much. Also Nano vs reg size I am guessing the size difference so thats something having to consider. I am thinking 25lbs of base rock and 20lbs of premium; No sand bottomless perhaps or only 1.25 inches of sand.

redoing tank by the way. Any other live rock suppliers recommended?

Love suggestions please.

See if you can get Walt Smith aquacultured rock. Man made rock that get seeded in the ocean for years.

I second You can get smaller quantities (as little as 10 lbs!) and the prices already include shipping.
