    Moolis that is very nice live rock. Looks like Indonesian. The Plus with this rock is that it is very light so one gets bigger pieces for the Kg. It also comes in with a lot of growth on it like star polyps etc. Two minor concerns though. Watch out for the odd aiptasia and watch out for cutting a finger or hand when handling. It stings like hell.

    Fiji

    Nemo is right the origin is Indonesian, not Fiji. Real Fiji look different.

    I have not seen real Fiji rock in years. Is someone still importing REAL FIJI rock??

    I would love to get a Little bit, like 200+KG!!!!

    Hi Sean

    I believe live rock to be the backbone of a healthy reef aquarium. So I buy a minimum of 500kg at A TIME AND prefer to have 1 TON IN STOCK ALL THE TIME! But moving so fast we normally only have +-400kg cured live rock & 300+kg un cured in stock:p

    AND before you ask
    we keep the new rock separate and do regular water changes till it is cured then it goes into display aquariums and sumps for customers to buy :thumbup:
