Will this make good LR?

I'm not very good at making links but if you can copy and paste this and tell me if any of these will work I will appreciate it: Rocks for Fish tanks I think the red stuff looks the best as it is very porous creating a lot of surface area for coralline algae, but I really don't know. What kind of base rock becomes good LR?

You could use any of them IMHO, but just make sure you rinse them with some RO water before putting them into the tank. I'd personally would use the top left rocks, but that's just my personal pref.

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea...

I like Tufa rock and Lava rock for base rock. The bottom picture is Lava rock. The other rocks do not look as porous as i'd like.

i think i paid $2 a pound for established wet pourus live rock. granted that may be a steal on my part im sure if you look around you can find something along those lines. $3-4 a pound for some good already established rock is still a good deal.

i sent you a PM.
