    Ok so this is my question? about live rock base rock and pelindaba rock... All advice will be welcome.... and critics please have a field day... shout if you must and big an bold and red if you like.

    I hit a couple of snags and will be posting pics in the next 2 weeks or so with my whole adventure so far... All i can say it has been an adventure but loving every moment so far.... Cracked and broke some glass... almost destroyed my RO unit when I dropped it.... and a new tank and sump with leaks and problems.... but that is my fault supporting the small home based business who turns out to be a snake...

    OK to get to my question.... I have 40 to 50 kg of live rock taking up all of the space in my 100 litre tank while i am in the process of getting my new tank up and running... I git a few pieces of Lava rock that is being seeded by the live rock as we speak...

    I am looking for something special "rock" as a feature for my tank that will give me balance and height? I am not able to source such a piece "Rock" look at a box of small base rocks at over R1000 and it is nothing to write home about.... I have managed to find some Pelindaba rocks that are amazing in terms of shapes and crevices and holes through the rock etc.... When I saw these rocks I knew these where the pieces I was looking for..... I am thinking of building my tank around these rocks.... The LFS guy advised that I indeed can use the rocks but with the rocks not being Poureous the will never be live rock.... FYI did not buy from LFS... Phoned hime for advice
    ???? Can I use the pelindaba rock in the tank and have live rock at a ratio of 50/50 in the dt and and house LR in the sump as well.... HELP Please guys???:wave2:
