Usually when I get a lot of rock from the LFS, they pack it in styrafoam boxes.... Make sure the LR is covered in lots of newspaper that was soaked in tank water.... If it dries out, you got trouble...

It would be a good idea to tote along a couple of containers to ask them for some extra tank water... and every hour or so, pour some over the rock and newspaper....

When you pack it, try to pack it so it won't be rolling around in the container... Otherwise by the time you get home, you'll have a lot of rubble...

Put the lr in a cooler with some water, put a tank towel in there over the rock, it will act like a sponge and soak up the water keeping the rock wet. With coolers, you don't have to worry about leaks and they are easy to carry when heavy with the sturdy handles. This is how I just bought my new rock for the 125.
