    To all the Sponsors. Do any of you sell a replica of live rock which is cheap and shippable? With the current market I cant afford LR R180 per KG... In turn my Aquascaping is, well... suffering as a result. Looking for nice big pieces which are suited for reefing (Perches ect). So yea if anybody could help me out would appreciate it, pics/prices welcome.

    just remember that there is zero denitrification offered by this rock as it is not porus and allow for this function to be performed by another method of filtration (DSB, Denitrator etc) but it is nice;)

    JD - I have to delete your post unfortunately, as this is the "sponsors forum" and Wayne is not yet a sponsor.... he was going to be, but this never happened yet.

    leslie I considered giving you a call regarding live rock, but then I had that little voice in the back of my mind shouting "Aptasia"... And yea I understand it has little to none filtration value, but at this point im going for looks over filtration. The LR i have can "try" and seed what i purchase. But i cant spend R2000 for 10KGs atm... Besides i need to buy new diving equipment, flippers, wetsuite ect...

    Sorry storm, I'm not selling any. But I will be able to advise you on the topic and I know a few suppliers as well. The problem is they aren't sponsors, so there names and numbers will be deleted by the mods.
