    Hiya pokey,

    You might want to consider making most of your rock, then only getting a few lbs of LR to seed it.

    See: The Complete Cookbook for Making Live Rock from Cement and Other Types of Rock.

    Might take a while, but would be worth it. Maybe you can make some extra on the side, and sell it to others facing same problem.

    i did that before.i used portland cement,aragonite sand,and mortons salt pelets.i mixed it all together made the shapes and then i cured it in fresh water for 3 months.the salt pelets dissolve and leave behind empty cavities perfect for stuff to grow in.the cement is a coraline magnet.i would'nt fill my whole tank with it but its perfect for growing frags on or making a certain shape you need.
