LFS in So Cal that carries really nice live rock?

Hey guys, I'm driving down next weekend to pick up my tank from Tom at Socaltropical fish. Does anyone know which stores carry really nice live rock? I paid a visit to PTF a few weeks ago and they didn't have much of a selection. I believe Tom stated he didn't have much right now as well.

I prefer to have a LFS order me a box. I'm not much into pre-cured rock or some that was given to the store when they tore down their tank.

Ahh, I forgot about that option, Greg. I may do a mixture of Marco and another type of live rock. Thanks again guys for the heads up.

Btw, are you coming up here for BAYMAC?

I know AoA has some Vanuatu and Aranjra(dont know the spelling) from sm to xxlg peices. lots of shelf rock big peices as well. Prolly wont be as cheap as here online. But getting some really nice flat shelf rock is hard to do. got some nice peices a few weeks ago for my 350, was 6.50 per pound
