    Default Dry macro rock?

    How many of you's use/have used it? Positives & negatives? Looking to buy dry online, local lfs wants 10$lb for cured. Would cost me 200+ for my 26g. To me this is crazy, could be wrong though. I know next to nothing about LR.

    talk to trop about their rock they got it 89 cents a pound right now and they have shipping capabilities, i am sure they can hook you up with a good deal and i think it is only 1 day ground too to ship to marquette from their store.

    I use it exclusively. I ordered 75 pounds of it and that is what is in my 270. I is very light weight so you get a lot for your money.

    Just ordered 15lbs of marco rock a few weeks ago. Paid something like $35 shipped. The rock is very light, came with way more rock than I needed for the 12gal nano i'm setting up. Very little rubble from shipping too. I would definitely order marco rocks again if I set up another tank. Trop sounds like a nice deal also though.

    I did my 60g rimless with dry Marco rock (from marco rocks) and I did the 520 with dry Haitian rock from the tropicorium. Both has worked out perfectly. I would suggest seeding it with a little bit of live rock but this is not mandatory either.
