    Best sources of live rock in the CO Springs area?

    I'm hoping to have my saltwater tank assembled and plumbed by this weekend.

    I'd like to run it with just live rock to start, and then slowly start adding a few corals after the tank has had a chance to stabilize itself.

    Anyone have higher quality live rock in the Springs area, or any place in particular I should avoid buying from based on experience?

    You could add dry rock, so you don't have to worry about pests or algae. If you do buy live rock, I would stay away from the LFS...I have had issues with them and they are ridiculously expensive. Inspect all rock thoroughly. Good luck
