    Hi All
    I'm new to fish forum, but have been a fish hobbyist for over 15 years. Love this website and community!
    Recently started a saltwater aquarium (2 months ago) in addition to the many freshwater I've had for many years I'm looking to incorporate more live rock and am looking for good reputable quality online sellers. There are so many it's almost impossible to know which one is reputable so I figured the best recommendation would be from many of you. I am looking for cured live rock not dry rock. I need about 25 more lbs and rock that is ready to just place in my tank. I'm willing to pay a fair price for quality rock. Any suggestions on where is best to order from?
    Thanks Alot,
    Larry

    Hi Larry - welcome to FishLore :)

    Some reputable online sellers:
    LiveAquaria.com - http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/aquarium-fish-supplies.cfm?c=393 (have purchased live rock from them online)
    That Pet Place - ThatPetPlace.com (have not purchased but heard good things)
    marcosrocks.com - http://www.marcorocks.com/liverock.aspx (have not purchased but heard good things)
    Vividaquariums - http://www.vividaquariums.com (have not purchased but heard good things)

    I prefer to visit a local reef shop and hand pick my rock. If you don't have a local reef store check those listed above.

    Ok I really got to ask, what is a live rock!? I always thought the point of a pet rock was that u didn't have to feed it, water ect. :3 Confused :p

    Yourreef.com is a reputable company, they give you free shipping on live rock all you have to do is pay a tax. I bought 15lbs of Fiji premium for $72.39 after tax. You should check them out:)
