    What is the best place to purchase live rock. I already got my sand so am good on that and I already have my salt. Any ideas? Also, what type live rock is the best? I know that there are several out there. Let me know, thanks.

    There are several online places if you are getting it all at once. Or go to the LFS and get pieces that you like.

    You can also buy dry base rock and seed it with acouple pieces of live rock.

    You want to get 1-2 pounds of LR per gallon.

    LFS is local fish store. You can buy any size, and if it ends up being too big for what you want/need you can always break it apart into smaller pieces

    I will probably be ordering online as our local stores are pretty limited on saltwater aquarium products. Damn I miss living in Florida, everything was always right there. Anyway, thanks for all the help.
