Shelf Rock is 100% natural oolite limestone dry rock that has been harvested from the Earth where older rock lies. This rock was once a beautiful coral reef structure as you can see in its unique striations. Shelf Rock is porous allowing increased surface area in which beneficial bacteria and algae are able to grow. It also provides extra hiding space for copepods and small invertebrates (e.g. hermit crabs, shrimp, and snails).
The large porous surface combined with the long shelflike shape of this rock is what gives it the name Shelf Rock. When sustainably sourced from the Earth as dry rock, it naturally fractures to create its shelf appearance and shape. It is a versatile type of rock that can add variety to your existing scape, or easily construct a new scape with a stand out design. Shelf rock will not fall short of helping you create a rockscape that will ooh and ahh.
