you might as well get it from marco's rock (pasfur has recommended this place a lot) I don't have the exact site or spelling, but he'll get that to you
Ya, i've always heard him talking about their dry rock being great (i got mine from there as well) but I dont remember him ever saying anything about their live rock. I could be wrong though...

I would personally buy my Live Rock as locally as possible. The farther the live rock has to travel, the more stuff dies off. You only need 25% of your Rock to be Live, if that. That will seed the base rock and in a few months, it'll all be live!

Agreed.

I have never ordered live rock from Marco Rocks The finest aquarium rock available, base rock, live rock, reef rock, marco rock, reef tank saltwater fish, live corals, Marco rocks, Fiji live rock, Tonga Live rock, but I can testify that the dry rock is great. I agree with Wake that live rock is best purchased local.
