    Some pics
    That big one was one of my gem finds. You can see the pvc pipe under too keep it off the sand. It's 12 Kg's
    I put an old sun sun flow pump with them so you can get some perspective. The other one is sort of the next biggest its 5 kg's some are that size and get smaller. I would like to get rid of all of it if possible. No use getting left with a few pieces.

    I sold Kenyan rock recently for R70 a KG. I do have plenty of smaller rocks, would like the big ones.

    Let me sleep on it.

    @Toffees
    how many KG rock do you want?
    I'm only interested in the 2 big pieces.

    But yeah Price is not pocket friendly at this time of the year.

    I estimate that i have about 50 Kg's(have weighed them its closer to 40 kg's, a few smaller pieces as well) . I am going to repack them and make sure they getting good flow around them. I would prefer to sell all so if anyone is keen to take it all then we can talk price.

    Price is never pocket friendly ;)
    But i know what i paid to get rock and there is nothing special about the pet shops R180 a kilo when i was looking for mine. It's ideal for a bigger tank yes. And we all know that marine is an expensive hobby so i don't mind helping the community out a bit but i would really like to get a decent amount for it if possible.

    @carlosdeandrade you have not come back about the urchins so reply soon or i'm going to go to second dibs not sure what protocol on this is. I don't know if these urchins are worth anything but they chow algae mainly the good stuff it seems and i think the new boyu 550 i have is too small for them thats why i cant keep them, unless i am not correct about this. Just don't wanna see them go to waste.

    @Toffees
    How much LR do you want?

    Easy Tiger wants 10 - 15 of the smaller stuff

    The 1 piece I want is 12kg. That leaves 38kg. Of which Easy Tiger wants 15. So another 23 for who- ever.
