So I started my first saltwater nano tank, I go get live rock from a mom and pop aquatic store I heard read great reviews on. I walk in and the only live rock they have is a few pieces in a dumpy tank, no customers and a teenager running the store. I ask if this is all the live rock they have and she answers "yep"' I ask what kind of rock is it and she replies "regular"....so I walk out mad because I was so excited to start this up and get my rock.
I go into town to another mom and pop store because I wanna shy away from chain pet stores as much as I can, I go in and they have a ton of new gorgeous live rock but she couldn't tell me much about it because she was the fresh water expert and her husband is the marine expert and with my luck he wasn't there today.
So can anyone tell me what kind of live rock this look like? Florida, Fiji, Caribbean? I just picked it up an hour ago and it's sitting so pretty in my tank patiently waiting for me to grab more.

It is, imo, great looking rock! Love the coralline and I would get more of that if possible.
I could guess at the rock but would not be sure and thus wont!
Good luck with your tank and if the rock is cycled, be sure and bring it home in water from the store and match your perimeters if possible. Salinity, all of it!
Good luck!

Hi, welcome to Fishlore
I don't think that it's possible to identify the origin of live rock

The best bet would be to ask the LFS where they get their rock. If it's from a distributor, that distributor should be able to tell you where they harvest from.
