    Most pet shops keep or can order base rock. It's dead so there's no need to cure it

    It that to get the rock to you or just the price of the rock excluding courier fees?

    It's the carib sea base rock which is decent. Ask for the primo reef rock. Unfortunately most guys will sell it as a whole box which comes with a mix of small, medium and large pieces. If they had to sell it loose they would sit with all the small pieces as guys for some strange reason only want big pieces. The nice thing with the rock is that smaller pieces can be glued onto bigger pieces with pratley's putty. So a few elastic bands to hold things in place and some imagination allows you to create really funky, gravity defying rockscaping you cant make with live rock unless you're prepared to kill everything on it by having it out the tank for a day or two. The other nice thing is it's cheaper than live rock and there are no unnecesary hitchikers. Heres a pic of my tank when i first started it a while ago with just base rock

    Thank you for the reply.
    Yes R1200 just for the base rock.Then add R300 to get it to me.
    Is it everything in your pic? Or just the white rock?
