I bought mine all fully cured from somebody breaking down their tank. It's 90% fiji. Then when I upgraded to a bigger tank I added in dry Fiji from marcorocks.com. It's great stuff. I also have a few random dry pieces from reeferrocks.com which I believe they mine in Texas. It looks like crappy fiji rock, not smooth like texas holey rock.

My name is Chris, and...I...have...an......aquarium....man, this is hard............addiction.  There, I said it, that feels better.

Mine is a mix of aquacultured and what looks to be either marshall or tonga fusion.

I have Totoka rock. Its one of the Fiji island rocks but is light and has many crevices. Its nice because it has branching forms like tonga but also triangular forms. Here is a picture I found from google, although I bought mine from a lfs:

from the las vegas desert! lol! really. it's very porous and has holes all throughout and plenty of crevices. i was driving by a big empty lot with this big pile of rocks. i just chose the pieces i wanted. kinda looks like the hole-y rock on ebay or the dry rock that you get from reefcleaners. it was free!

I feel badly after this poll ! Thats alot of LR stripped from the ocean , and we wonder why coral reefs are doing poorly!

I think we need to start farming live rock if its not being done already . I can't see it being that difficult!
This poll makes me sadd ! :huh:

There is no option for "all of the above"
thrive (adjective) (throve,thriven, also thrived)
Very lively and profitable; blooming; a term often used by nubz looking for excuses on why they have something in their reef that does not belong there.

+1. I have a very wide array of mixed rock, probably half the list at least, between the Nano and the Macro tank.

To be honest I don't know but where ever it was it came with aiptasia which I have got rid of over and over again and it normally stays away just long enough to make me think it has been eliminated before returning.

As a newbie I first saw 1 on the rock and was delighted when I saw 10 more a week later until Ibegan to dislike them when I found out what they were now I despise them and kill on sight but have accepted they may never be completely exterminated no mater how hard I try.
