    Vanuatu Live Rock

    I'm planning on buying some Vanuatu Live Rock for my tank and I was wondering if people who have Vanuatu rock in their tanks could post pictures in this thread. I'm trying to dertermine if it is the look that I want for my tank.

    Thanks,

    Steph

    This is my 90 gal. There is a little less than 90 lbs in the tank.
    I was very impressed with the rock that I got. My aquascaping does not take advantage of all the branch like pieces.

    There could be alot of coraline. I have a very large destructive urchin that eats everything in her path. She seems to frequent the same spots but the coraline grows back fairly quickly. As for colors, there's light purple, dark burgundy, light green, red, purple plating, red plating, very light pink and I have seen some orange too.

    Nice Tank Andrew. The rock seems nice too. Where did you pick it up?

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    I got the rock from Ivan here at Aquaria Canada. This tank has been running since Jan 1 2004, so a little over 10 months. I ordered 100 lbs and put the extra in my refugium with the rock from my old tank. The order I got had a good mix of sizes and shapes. There were a couple of good large pieces I used for the base stucture, a number of branching pieces, and flat pieces to make larger caves.
