The very BEST in base rock anywhere! Primarily lava based stone rock as typically found all around Hawaii in various shades of tan and brown. Heavy loads of microscopic animal life, bacteria and enzyme which will benefit and promote a more natural filtration and natural eco-system. This is by far the best base rock sold anywhere with incredible shapes perfect for building caves, arches, and shelf pieces far more spectacular than Fiji or any other on the market. It's heavier and shaped better than Fiji which makes it perfect for larger fish, larger snails like Mexican turbos, and even larger eels like morays that normally would knock over Fiji rock. This is a very secure stable rock that holds it's planted shape well. All rock will vary in but not limited to size, shape, color, quality, hitch hikers, density, etc. The rock is medium in density weight compared to other rocks and is typically loaded with holes, crevices and unique shapes great for marine or reef tank use. Coralline algae will grow very quickly following the instructions in our live rock care package, so if structure and shape is more important than initially coloring in order to build awesome structures in your tank, this is the rock that you want!
Oceanpro Aquatics, Inc. is a world renowned importer and distributor of live rock and transships more varieties of live rock than any other distributor. This rock does not pass through several hands before it gets to our customers. We have it collected and imported directly into the United States where it is then distributed by us throughout the world. This rock can be used to stock your entire tank whether it be reef or fish only. It is fully cured and will smell and look like you collected it right out of the ocean yourself. No more concern of rotten, smelly high ammonia rock to worry about. This tank can safely be put directly into the tank with no curing in separate buckets like many other premium rocks require.
We also use a system of cleaning, transporting and segregating our rock making it not only fully cured but also free of unwanted pests like Mantis shrimps and Aiptasia.
This fine rock may be used anywhere from just the base section of your tank and then more premium rock can be planted atop of it, or you may stock your entire tank with it from top to bottom.
