 i  guess  we  buy  live  rock  mainly  for  the  algae  n  other  stuff  living  on  its  surface......but  i  have  one  question.......is  it  only  the  surface  area  of  the  live  rock  thats  useful????  if  it  is  so  then  is  it  not  better  to  buy  smaller  chunks  of  live  rock  so  that  we  get  more  surface  area  as  opposed  to  a  big  heavy  live  rock.....i  mean  instead  of  having  one  big  10kg  live  rock  wouldnt  10  small  1  kg  live  rocks  be  more  effective  ?????

 LR  is  usuallu  sold  on  Piece  basis  and  not  weight  basis  hence  your  idea  will  turn  out  to  be  more  expensive.

 You  are  absolutely  right  dr.  in  small  set-ups  it  is  advisable  to  have  smaller  LR  than  just  a  large  one.

 Would  a  cowfish'  offspring  be  fry  or  calf-fish?
   Very Happy  
 Looks  like  Dr.  is  the  target  for  the  day.
 
 I  agree  with  you  Dr  ,  surface  area  is  what  matters  more.  Also  having  more  pieces  of  LR  will  enable  you  to  have  some  caves  and  hideaways  for  your  fish  and  invertebrates  as  well  as  better  water  flow  .  
 It  would  be  a  rather  large  waste  of  space  to  have  one  big  chunk  of  rock  stuck  in  an  aquarium  with  no  other  benefits  ..

 psimhan,
 your  keen  interest  in  the  salt  sections  compells  me  to  ask  you  about  your  set-up  or  plans  for  set-up.

 any  chance  of  this
 
 becomming  this??????????????  Cheer

 Fiscos,
 the  stable  big  sized  rocks  are  known  as  base  rocks  on  which  the  LR  rests  and  IMO  having  big  sized  LR  is  not  desirable  in  a  small  tank  like  the  one  dr.  has

 Kochu,
 we  have  at-least  a  dozen  links  like  that  but,  who  has  the  patience  of  waiting  for  the  DIY  live  rock  to  get  seeded  Sad  
 I've  made  LRs  myself  but,  the  kind  of  patience  which  goes  into  curing  them  is  something  which  should  be  considered  -  every  one  talks  of  DIY  LR  but,  how  many  of  us  know  that  the  rocks  that  we  make  are  just  concrete  or  sand  structures  without  the  most  essential  ingridient  -  life!

 Don't  you  guys  remember  one  thing?  
 
 The  rocks  that  we  use  are  full  of  holes  which  go  through  the  stone  (if  selected  that  is).  So  in  that  case,  the  surface  area  increases  tremendously  also  in  some  rocks  giving  a  chance  for  anaerobic  bacteria  to  settle  deep  inside  the  stone.
 
 So  i  dont  agree  that  a  large  rock  (if  full  of  small  holes)  isn't  as  better  as  10  small  rocks.
 Regards,
 amod.

 I  agree  with  Aquascapes.  In  the  end,  you  will  have  to  seed  the  DIY  LR  with  LR  to  get  the  critters  growing  on  it.  
 Plus  there  is  the  issue  of  pH  with  concrete  LR.
