Anyone in canada know a source for decent actual live rock? My lfs basically sell diatom covered aptasia infested wet base rock.
Thats amazing thank you for the response! I haven't seen anyone selling real ocean rock in canada but that gives me hope! At this point id pay anything to get some maricultured rock.Unfortunately....'live rock' definition has been misused since the dry rock phenom started for reef tanks. There is simply not enough supply of real grown in the ocean live rock in today's market. However...that is all changing as the new owners of Tampa Bay Saltwater have stepped up and are going to be the go to source for aqua cultured live rock as I was for 30 years. The first container of Walt smith rock was just buttoned up in Fiji this week and is on the way as I type this. This will be a game changing move for real live rock in an industry that is crying for it. This is really going to be good folks, real live rock for all...and is ship able worldwide as it is not on the CITIES list. I suspect this production will begin towards the end of this year. Rock will be in the water for the annual August coral spawn here in Florida, coral spat love this substrate. This is the first container of rock being buttoned up in Fiji this week, on the way to the US and Tampa Bay saltwater's new owners and
visionaries !!!!! Over 20,000 pounds in this container...and many more to follow....is going to be great...to see the process look here Richard TBS
@RockShark @LiveRockLyonThis is such great news! I remember my first TBS package many years ago. And now I am finally setting up a new large tank and can’t wait for the possible addition of this rock! Where can I go for updates to know when?
