    Are there any local places to get good, quality live rock with a lot of life in it? I need to seed my new build, and all the brick and morter LFSs that I knew of have closed down or greatly reduced their Saltwater portions.

    I haven't been to forest lake in awhile but I'm guessing that's one that downsized. They also had lots of life but maybe more of the nuisance variety...

    Is there a side of the cities you get to regularly?

    Someone has mentioned New Wave Aquaria got in some nice live rock awhile back. To the tune of $10-$12/lb I think. They got it back in June I want to say, so unsure how it's been kept or how much life has survived if they aren't tending to it. But, might be worth a look.

    I live 20 minutes north of Forest Lake, but we made the journey to BRS, SWE, and WOF a few times a year before we took a hiatus from the hobby.

    Forest lake pets actually had redone their saltwater and looked pretty nice
    Have not been there for a few months but believe they had live rock
