I like this because its im my price range but im worried if i buy 22 pounds of it they willl send me 1 or 2 big peices and my fish wont have enuff hiding places. Do you know how big 22 pounds of lr is? is this rock good? light,porus.
I also like this but its a little out of my price range.

Im not an expert on live rock but I do believe if you can see algae or things growing on the live rock at your lfs then it should be good rock. Thats what I was told anyways. Sorry I cant help more.

I was told that urually when places like that send you live rock its a gamble. you could get alot of small pieces or a few really big pieces. We have not personally bought out live rock from the internet before, so i couldnt tell you for sure.

Foster and Smiths is a reputable company. I recommended Monica because I personally know her, as a friend, not just an internet buddy. Her shop is about an hour away from the house. I've been a few times. She also sponsors several of our local forums and outings, inlcuding our HUGE collection trip in Port A this year. Woohoooo..... I got a room that sleeps 7. See you all there.

I bought some of the Carribean live rock off live aquaria. It was nice, really big pieces. Though still would all would be able to fit in a 20g. They have the nano pack in that kind is only 15 lbs, but smaller pieces.
