We find that making our own rock, and not taking the live rock from the ocean is very rewarding and honestly easier, safer, and more fun. Not to mention it is the right thing to do. Please do not take me wrong, for I do not believe it is what is coming out of the ocean that is the cause for the death of our wild reefs. It is what is going into the ocean that is the main culprit.
When making our own rock we create several different shapes which allows you to design so many different environments to showcase a wide variety of fish and coral. You will not have the unwanted algae problems. If you do not put algae in your tank you will not have that problem. This created rock does not have any die off so setting up the tank and skipping cycles is such a bonus. We seed our man made rock with our Famous GARF Grunge which seeds the rock and brings the tank into a natural balance. GARF Grunge provides an abundance of coralline, sponges, starfish, and all the beneficial bacteria.
