Default live rock

Back in the hobby after a 10 year hiatus, wondering if there's still any retailers that ship live rock to Canada?

From outside Canada, no. Actually... I don't think anyone in the world even collects (real) live rock anymore. You have to go with the man made stuff.

Your best bet would be finding someone that is shutting their tank down, and buying their LR. Or you can get dead rock and seed it. Over time it will become live.

Actually there is at least one place in Florida that does but they won’t ship here. I thought there were companies that put rock in the ocean to seed it and then collect it after

Badlands Marine in Lethbridge can get it sometimes but not often.

I have been looking for a box of the good stuff for myself and am having trouble. Closest I have found is the place in Florida, ship it to great falls, then drive it back across.
