    I'm new and setting up a 72 gallon tank. I was wondering if someone could suggest where the best place to buy really nice live rock is, and what kind of live rock is the best, i.e. Tonga, Fiji Islands, Marshall Islands? Thanks.

    Welcome Dianna,
    There are a lot of on-line Suppliers with some great deals. Most deal only with the US so I'm not sure of the best deals (I'm in Canada). I would say the three you have listed are all good.
    This link is Canadian but it has good pics of the three types of rock. to give you an idea of what you want

    Hi Dianna,

    If you want some great rock loaded at a great price, loaded with lots of "life" - ready to go, no "curing" required...

    Call Dale Barger at Gulf View Marine. I was really, really happy with the stuff he sent me.

    I added his "top Shelf deco" rock to a bed of Fiji - and it look great.

    Regards,
