    Hi There

    I was wondering if the PE people can help me.

    Im trying to find some live or dead rock. Small to medium pieces i dont want the
    massively large pieces. I went to all of the lps in PE but nobody seems to have
    only one place had some very large pieces of dead rock.

    So if anyone have some for sale or know where i can get some i would appreciate
    it.

    Thanks

    Hey dude, give me a shout if you want to go and collect LR in the PE area. All my systems are made from locally harvested LR and there are LOTS of excellent spots. I've got a new system that I am in the process of setting up and will need to go and get gravel/mud/sand and LR some time soon....

    Technically, as long as you have a invert permit it covers "most" of the life on the rocks. Other than that there are regulations pertaining to what weight of shells (shingle component of the substrate) you can remove, but the rest is a bit of a grey area legally speaking.

    Only thing in the regulations is no collection of dead or live stony coral that's submerged. There is nothing that says you can't take sandstone or other solid rock. If you have a mollusc permit you're covered for pretty much everything living on the rock.
