I am also agree with you.. Even planning again to start a reef tank. This time a three footer with proper lighting. But I dont want to start with live rock and searching some option.

You can always start with dead rock and seed it using sand or LR from established tank.

Start with dead rocks.. or with artificial live rocks...
for my experience i would always use artificial live rock.. it would save the nature as well as keep away pests away from the tank....

seed it using prodibio stuff... ad you are ready to rock !!!
Finally i am Broke but Happy :D

Tank as of today 21/04/2016. Tank is fairly stable now as far as parameters are concerned. I lost my bubble coral :( No Idea why? It kept shrinking till it was too late. Growth in other corals have been significant.
