View Full Version : Part one in the tank

02/26/2016, 06:49 AM
I did a lot of research and decided to go with TBS because of all the positive reviews. All I can say is Wow!!! If you are on the fence as to where to buy live rock, look no further. The life on this rock is crazy. With part one in the tank, I have seen a decorator crab, a goby, numerous porcelain crabs, sponges, worms, pods, countless barnacles, snails, featherdusters, red mithrax crabs, several pistol shrimps, and a few hermit crabs. There are several whelks and a few gorilla crabs, but they will be banished soon. This is what live rock is supposed to look like!! Hats off to Richard for great customer service. The weather has been keeping Richard off the water, but he kept me up to date by sending marine forecasts and as soon as he was able to get out, I got my rock. I will post pics after part 2. 10 out of 10 for TBS

What size package did you get? I am thinking of getting the 15 gallon package. I only need roughly another 25lbs of rock

I have a 280 gal tank and got a 200 package plus an extra 80 lbs of sand. Looks like it will be plenty of rock by time I get part 2
