Default reef building the fundamentals

If you where to build your system all over what would you chose for rocks.
For sharing Please specify your findings as to what and why would you do it any different...

1)I would get any(man made,natural calcium base rock) dry rocks and seed it with any live rock from LFS
2)I would get natural dry rock and seed it with live rock from LFS
3)I would get natural dry rock and seed it with aquacultured live rock from LFS


explanation of above words.
.Any live rock meaning what is available at your nearest LFS for live rock.
.Natural rock meaning dead reefs dry rock
.Aquacultured rock meaning natural rock that been cycled and seeded ready for a system without any of the pests.

I would get specifically only live rock, not man made.

Given the various issues good and not good that I had with starting with all live rock I think I would go with a mix of small cured and uncured and use large dry rock for the bulk. If I could get aqua-cultured rock I would use that in preference to uncured.

Too soon to judge as my system is only 7 months old. So far all is well with Marco seeded with live rock from lfs and fellow reefer. I did pick up some new shelf dry rock from Concept yesterday...

Yes I think that's equally valid. We all have different needs and capacity to deal with all live uncured rocks or partially cured or mixture with dry ones.
