    Hey, i was wondering if there is anyone that knows of a lfs that could store some live rock for me until i complete my set up??

    I am bidding on it on ebay and its just an offer i can not resist. It works out at around £3 a kilo which is a unbelievable price.

    Its comng from a well mature system so its a bonus with loads of critters hopefully all good

    I dont know of any lfs doing that sort of thing free (if at all) but if it is in the short term you can be keep in a very large bucket or barrel. Just make sure it is in ro salted water and has a heater and a powerhead giving plenty of flow all around and between the pieces of lr. Water changes once a week would be required as if it was in your tank.

    if you put a request up on here someone locally may be able to lend you a container and even possibly a pump etc.
