View Full Version : TBS Rock is Special

I recently custom built a 22 long Mr. Aqua with a matching sump. I spent months building the setup and wanted everything to be perfect. I was soooo excited to order my rock from TBS and did a ton of research about it beforehand. There were tons of positive reviews about all the life on the rocks and in some cases some bad hitchhikers. I knew ordering from TBS and the surprise critters would be so fun but I never expected to be this happy!

My tank cycled in 2 days and is thriving. No algae growth and all the barnacles are still alive. Also, porcelain crabs galore and didn't receive any bad hitchhikers! Everything is so interesting to watch. Richard also included many extras like sponges and a flower nem. I also received a pincushion urchin in the live sand. He cracks me up and has insisted on wearing the same polyp hat no matter how many times I take it away.

Also, the rock came in super interesting shapes with lots of tunnels. Aquascaping was a breeze! I can't imagine my tank without the TBS rock. Thanks again Richard!

I still have a 30lb piece of rock from TBS from 5 years ago that has just made my tank that was all dry rock before explode with life! Sponge,small,clams, SPS, and pods galore! Best money I have ever spent on liverock

Besides the beauty of the rock Richard sends there are two other factors that make it the best. The fact that you get the rock, sand etc. right away, I mean right away! Second, the rock and sand is fully submerged in the freshest water you have never smelled! Pure, clean, crystal clear water.

Both tanks look great, its a shame that you cannot view the sump as much as the tank.
