    thats debatable :) ive seen some figian that was very poor quality and ive seen some great kenyan. Indeed ive seen better kenyan LR from a perspective of porosity and size than i have seen branching tongan or figian LR. Granted branching tongan LR and some shapes one gets from fiji are great for bridging and aquascaping, but i wouldnt agree that tongan or fijian are necesarily much better quality. There is also the restriant of cities on LR from those areas where Kenya doesnt have those restrictions, which in turn increases the costs and thus the precieved value more than its actual worth. Its that old thing of paying more for something must mean its better....

    Zuna - fuji live rock is definitely THE BEST live rock you can get. It is very good for bio-diversity.

    The other, is tonga branch live rock. Also fantastic live rock. But, the tonga branch is more for decoration - to make a marine aquarium "look more real"..... ;)

    At R130 per kg, it is actually quite "cheap" (for real fuji).....
