    Hi,

    I am a newcomer to this forum and to reefkeeping... I am currently busy setting up my first tank, a "nano" reef tank at 40gal/150L. I am pretty much sorted on equipment for the time being and it is time to set things up and cycle the tank with some live rock. But before I get there, I need a good source of live rock in JHB/PTA. I am looking to buy in bulk, and am I correct in assuming I would need at least 20kg for a tank of my capacity ? Any recommendations ?

    Thanks!

    Hey I have some live rock just sitting in a box which I advertised last week for sale on another forum (around 25-30kgs...)

    live rock

    I have about 30kg of live rock that has been in water for the past 5 years and it is still in water with flow and heat if you are interested at R50 per kg but can make a plan on the price if you take all
