Mine was a combo of Marshall Islands, Fiji and Kaelini.....added 'Solomon Islands' later. Don't be impressed..that rock added a pretty nasty red macro hitchhiker. SH

Most of mine is from the Tub at the LFS so your guess is as good as mine ;)

Purchased some fiji later that had to have been 90% aiptasia and 10% rock though :angry:

I have a mixture of LR but I think the majority is Fiji. I think the rest would be Marshall but we are talking about maybe 5 pounds of it only.

Kaelini from Dr. Mac. His rock is the best. Period.

Mine is a even mixture of Tonga Branch, Fiji and Sulawesi! The Sulawesi is gorgeous! Great shapes and colors! Had to vote Fiji because the Sulawesi was not listed.

Mostly Florida Keys aquacultured rock. The other 30% is a mixture of stuff. There are a few pieces of Fiji rock in there (uck, aptasia!), some dried coral bits that I found on the shore and let get encrusted with coraline (no problems there so far) and a "mystery rock" from the LFS.

Mine came from my backyard, just picked some nice muddy pieces and tossed them suckers on in! :D j/k

I have all Fiji premium in my AP12g. When I set up my Finnex 30g in a week or two here, I plan to use both Marshall Island/Kaelini and Tonga shelf L/R. Maybe some pieces of Fiji too, but not totally sure.

I wasn't banned, I LEFT! I was sick of the "awesome Hospitality" from allmost everyone here. Some are immature, others are nice and want to help, and others are just mean. I'm never commin on here again, go ahead and celebrate, see how much I care.
