    We are always more than willing to help! Visit our website check out our selection, we also have Live Chat now available to help you answer questions on the fly..

    Free sand and rock will be hard to come by, not saying its impossible but keep your eye out for people posting items for sale. I believe in order to view the sale threads and FIF threads you will have to become a member first.

    Buying pounds upon pounds of live rock and live sand is overrated. Go dry sand/rock then seed it with a few pieces of live rock and or bacteria.

    Check out Bulk reef supply for rock and Saltwater Empire for sand.

    Correct - becoming a member gets you access to the TCMAS classifieds and frag it forward (free stuff) sections.

    Members are always selling or giving away many items at excellent prices
