    Cool

    get it here. As far as I know Ivan can get it drop shipped to your door but check first. I bought 2 types so far and they were great!

    I've bought lots of liverock from J&L previously and was thrilled with all of it! Described what I wanted and they sent it! Can't speak highly enough of them.

    I recently heard(maybe rumour) that J&L has been sold, I knew they were up for sale but they had no takers until now.

    Hey Mecka

    Where in Winnipeg did you go and look for Live Rock? I'm also going to be in the market for some in the summer. I have been wondering if I could get it in the city or would have to go to an outside source.

    Does Saltwater Connections have an outlet in Winnipeg? They have a web presence.

    I purchased live rock from J&L but unfortunately it was a rather bad experience. Supposedly Walt Smith rock, but it was extremely poor quality, and nothing but small pieces. Not to mention that my package got lost, and spent 12hrs outside somewhere (it was in the winter).

    So, my experience was not good.....

    I suspect that rock changes in batches in the same place as much as it does from place to place. You could order from J&L's one time and get really great rock but then order more a few months later and it not be so great. I can't imagine calling them up and asking "what's your rock like today?" why would they tell you if it's bad? I'd recommend hiring a spy Or you could just order from Ivan because I believe if it was crappy he'd just tell ya.
