    I have had people talk about different kinds of live rock. Are there any differences between them besides where they came from?

    Mainly the shapes and density of the rock. Less dense is lighter and therefore you need less of it. But it is usually more expensive.

    Ok that's was a lot to intake. Krish thank you for the clearing up on the differences in rock. And touching on the pro's and con's. Of it. @ mojo that's was pretty good input. It makes sense of the cycling that takes place, and the change in cycle. And makes sense that live rock really isn't doing the work but the beneficial bacteria on it. Didn't think of it that way. But a ? And I may have missed it. But wouldn't rock that was really porous also allow for filtration as to let material that can be used by the beneficial bacteria to go through the porous openings aiding in the filtration?

    Thanks for the comments!

    As for your question, if I am understanding what you are asking correctly, the more porous the rock is the better it is for biological filtration purposes.
