Out of curiousity...
I was just wondering how many pounds of live rock you all used in your systems. We're talking total amount here so any sumps or other areas that you have it stashed would be added in. If you could post the total water volume of your system that would be great too.
I have about about 80 gallons total and 130lbs in mine.

Probably around 40lbs. total in my 31g (I have about 10 in the fuge). Not sure exactly because I have added and subtracted rocks here and there.40g SW

We have between 90lbs - 100lbs in our 70g tank. No sump, just the tank.100g Reef

my 110g has about 120-130 kg of live rock which is approx 264-286 pounds
I am thinking about doubling this though

We have a 29 gallon with a 20 gallon sump. I'd say we have 45 lbs in the display and roughly 5-10 in the sump so a total of 50-55 lbs

20 long frag tank
75 gal-planted goldfish

There might be enough room for a couple of hermit crabs and a peppermint shrimp but that about it.100g Reef
