    Hi guys! I'm looking for 60kg base rock coz live rock is way to expensive (R100 per kg). Second hand will also do. Must be in range of Amanzimtoti or durban.

    Brilliant idea if you want to sleep in jail...its illegal , actually even collecting sand needs a permit

    LOL , no worries not a lot of people are aware of that.....also our local base rock is quite "dense" , better to go artificial then IMHO, also keeps the ass out of jail ;)

    Sorry for bad info but I'm sure I read some where on MASA that people collect their own sand, rock, water and livestock. (With a permit for the live stock I know.)
    I also thought that if the coral is broken off then it can be collected. This was in the eighties though when I was living down there. In fact I did have a permit and was collecting in a reserve (I didn't know I promis.)when I was caught by an official who ended up helping me catch a Threadfin buterflyfish.

    The only problem with DIY rock is that It takes a bit longer (curing process in fresh water) but you can make some nice rocks that you'll never find in a marine shop or in the ocean.
