    I used the reef saver dry rock from BRS and I could not be happier with the product. I asked for some cool pieces and they did an amazing job, plus it was only a little over $2/lbs. I might buy a nice piece of live rock from my LFS to seed everything else but I have had such bad luck with hitchhikers in the past I am a little hesitant to do so.

    Went ahead and did a 15% water change and got them down to around 5ppm.
