    How much live rock you need really depends on how big the set-up is, and the quality of the live rock. You can use the rule of thumb to get 1 lb per gallon. The below link will help you with being able to judge the quality of the live rock you are looking at

    http://www.reefaquarium.com/2013/cur...ine-aquariums/

    Keep in mind, you will have to pay a minumum of $100.00 in freight to get live rock form that site which is over and above the cost of buying aqua-cultured live rock. You can find enough good quality live rock for sale privately for a 40 to 55 gallon set-up for under $100, and you can visually inspect the rock to make sure it is good quality before you pay for it.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Yeah but it also is shipped in full water and comes with a clean up crew so it is worth the money and it comes with some coral and sponges and starfish and such and is very good quality it is collected and taken the holding facility and then shipped to u in full water

    Based on the videos and pictures this company has on there website, some of there rock looks pretty good, but a lot of it doesn't look very porous at all (more like base rock). My point is that you can not pick out the most porous rock for your package. You get the good with the not as good. Unfortunately, this is very typical for aquacultured rock. This is the biggest reason why I like to recommend people purchase live rock from other hobbyist. You get the benefits of not supporting the harvesting of live rock from the coral reefs while saving a a whole lot of money in the process (a fraction of the cost actually). The costs of marine aquariums seams to me to be the biggest reason why most people do not keep marine aquariums. Aquacultured rock and very high shipping costs don't help that

    Once you have a marine aquarium of your own, and get a chance to see the effects of good quality and not so good quality live rock in a aquarium, you will see what I am trying to say here.

    Yeah that's the thing they mine underground anceient coral reefs that are dead they have been in dirt for a thousand years and they put the reef structure on a five acres ocean site they rent and let it sit there for 10 years and then they go and harvest bring some to a holding facility andthen ship to u, and if you are local you can go and pick it up at the holding facility I think not sure where you go but you can do it. Oh and I have seen aquariums with the rock and only the package from there in it they look better then your tank they have sponges, corals, fish, non pest anemones, shrimp, snails, sand of course, starfish, brittlestars, serpent stars, basicly everything

    Yes, that is the definition of aquacultured rock.
