Hi guys i need some advice. We are going to mossel bay for December and i was wondering if i can collect the dry rock on the beach and use it to build my reef in tank. Tank has some live rock in it. Will obviously first boil and hp clean the rocks before i put it in tank. What is your views on this. And if any one know where the best place is to collect rock. Tx.

You dont want that rock in your tank. The liverock you buy in the shops is old coral skeletons so its calcium based. The rock at Mosselbay is sedimentary and will most likely leach nasty things into your tank.
