Yes. It's not a chain store, and I don't know how to tell if it's cured. It is inside a gigantic aquarium with water and the rock also has a coral looking thing attached to it. Very soft, they go with the flow of the water. I can't describe them, it's like attached to the rock, some look like mushrooms. I wonder if this is an indicator of it being cured?If it's pre cured that's a good price is this at your local LFS?
Is it really worth that much? 2.50 to 8 is a big difference. How long does it take to cure a um, dead live rock?If ther's coral attatched then it is cured with life I would buy it and skip the hassle of curing!!!! Go for it!!! * bucks for that here it is alot more than that my friend!!!
Is 8 dollars per pound of figi rock acceptable?
So much of this is dependent on where you live IME. Before I moved, any live rock was $8-9 per pound. Craigslist deals were few and far between, and the local reef club wasn't all that active so not many deals there either. Once I came to the Atlanta area, I noticed how much cheaper everything is- live rock, fish, coral, even supplies and equipment. The reef club here is huge and there are Craigslist deals galore. Just wanted to point out that depending on where you live, $8 per pound might not be too bad. If you want, you can always order rock online and cure it yourself. It will cycle your tank for you in the process.Depends on what kind of fiji rock. Seing that price, I would assume you're looking at a store. Try looking one through craigslist or a local reef club. I've never purchased LR more than 2.50 a pound.
