This new base rock from Pristine Rock is professionally cleaned and dried to ensure no pesky hitchhikers, pests, or algae are introduced into your saltwater aquarium. This dry rock is not man-made; it is real calcium carbonate limestone-structured aragonite we quarry in Florida, far away from living coral reefs. It is completely reef-safe and will not leach any undesirable contaminants into your delicate saltwater system. If you ordered colored rock then please also check out our Touch Up Colorants for after you aquascape so you can cover up the white spots.
This dry rock is super porous with plenty of surface area to grow beneficial nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria to act as a biological filter to help maintain pristine water conditions in your tank. PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST CYCLE THE ROCK BEFORE ADDING LIVE ANIMALS!!!
Reef aquarium hobbyists get more bang for their buck with high-porous, low-density aquarium rocks. You not only get more volume per pound but fewer pounds are required to fill your aquarium compared to denser, heavier base rock for sale. Dry Reef Rock is a tremendous value, especially compared to live rock, since you do not have to pay for extra water weight and expedited shipping.
Also environmentally friendly because it's harvested on land in Florida and only the best pieces are selected to sell for aquarium use. We handpick a variety of shapes and sizes to make aquascaping your reef tank fun and easy. Dry rock is full of nooks and crannies that offer great anchoring points for stacking rocks or placing coral frags. Aquarium Epoxy molds easily to the dry rock allowing you to create elaborate pillars, sturdy shelves, interesting overhangs, and cool caves.
Using our Dry Rock guarantees unwanted hitchhikers will not enter your tank, which is commonplace with live rock. Having no detrimental and difficult-to-remove aiptasia and majano anemones, fire worms, flatworms, mantis shrimp and pyramidellid snails in your aquarium is a huge advantage that will save you time, money, and stress during the life of your tank.
