As far as personal experiance i ordered from aloha aquariums and got 30lb fiji LR for 2 dollars a pound. But they used no heat packs which resulted in alot of die off, regardless there was still coraline growth on all the rocks. I have herd good things about liveaquaria.com and marinedepot.com. You can buy cured or uncured rock for a new aquarium you can use either (uncured will take longer to cycle and you will need established rock to seed it). Most people buy cured to shorten the length to cycle and for ease. Putting uncured rock in a established tank will result in it re-cycling and probably some livestock die off. Im new to this so if im wrong please someone correct me.

Try www.pacificeastaquaculture.com Great customer service, and depending on where in MD you are, you may be able to cherry pick your pieces for the same as you'll buy bulk online. They're in Mardella Springs, MD. About 15 minutes out of Salisbury.
