    Dont know either, but we also could use some locate rocks as we are very close to the ocean. Live rock is about $8.99 a pound here in the states.
    Good luck,

    Bye the way how long did it take to cycle your tank? 1 month?

    Welcome to the forums.

    Try making your own rocks. Search for Aragocrete online and look under the How To - Pages at Geothermal Aquaculture Research Foundation Home Page for some good tutorials. Takes some curing time, but might be your only option.

    good luck and welcome to livingreefs.

    Hello,
    Welcome, and you can add real live rock now, and also might want to consider adding Bacteria by the bottle to jumpstart your reef system. I was told that it could cut your 4 to 6 week cycle time almost done to 2 weeks. I just added it to my new tank and added two clowns immediaty and they still are alive and kickin.

    You might want to try a product called Biozyme, the saltwater version comes in a red container. I have found it to work very well for cycling the tank.
