    This all I have a few pieces of Fiji in my 46g. Will be throwing a few pieces of Key largo in as well. Can anyone identify the big piece on the right?

    Are you sure? Rock from the Pacific is almost always less dense then Atlantic rock. A lot of the Atlantic/Florida rock comes from quarrys and is more dense. IME, fiji rock is very porous and light compared to Florida rock. I've seen two piles of equal weight of Fiji and Florida rock and the fiji pile was decently larger then the Florida rock.

    I have about 85lbs of fiji. I never liked the branching/florida stuff too much, just my personal taste.

    Thanks. I bought the rock here:
    Aquarium Concepts - The Bay Area Aquarium Store
    A pretty amazing fish store - VERY large - tons of aquariums for sale from big to small and a nice selection of coral too. Worth a trip.
