AquaMaxx

AquaMaxx Eco-Rock is a 100% natural, eco-friendly live rock alternative that is perfect for all marine fish and reef aquarium systems.

This new base rock from AquaMaxx is professionally cleaned and dried to ensure no pesky hitchhikers, pests or algae are introduced into your saltwater aquarium. AquaMaxx 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.

AquaMaxx Eco-Rock does not affect the aquarium nitrogen cycle and may therefore be added to new aquariums and established tanks alike. AquaMaxx dry rock for saltwater aquariums 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.

Reef aquarium hobbyists get more bang for their buck with high porous, low density AquaMaxx 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. AquaMaxx 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.

AquaMaxx environmentally friendly Eco-Rock is 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. AquaMaxx rock is full of nooks and crannies that offer great anchoring points for stacking rocks or placing coral frags. Aquarium epoxy molds easily to AquaMaxx aquarium dry rock allowing you to create elaborate pillars, sturdy shelves, interesting overhangs and cool caves.

Using AquaMaxx Eco-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.

AquaMaxx Eco-Rock is available in 3 box sizes: 10 lbs, 25 lbs. and 50 lbs. We recommend 1 to 2 lbs. of rock per gallon of aquarium water. 1 pound per gallon for a open-water landscape with more space for your fish to swim. 2 pounds per gallon for a denser landscape so you can create more caves/crevices and more area to place your corals. Please note the photos displayed on our website are merely representative of the rock you will receive so the actual size, shape and appearance will vary with each order.

To seed your aquarium with beneficial bacteria, just place a separate piece of quality live rock in your tank along with AquaMaxx Dry Reef Rock or use a bacterial supplement to kickstart the cycling process. Soon your dry rock will be alive and beautiful!

I'm impressed!

This is great rock to either start from scratch or add to existing live rock. My 50 lbs arrived in two boxes. I opened the first box and thought "wow, these are going to be way to big for my tank if they're all this size". Then I opened the second box - all small to medium. I laid everything out on a towel in the floor and what I had was an excellent mix of sizes. Nearly ZERO breakage in shipping too. I ended up with quite a bit extra but I'll just keep in on hand for future tanks. If you have the patience for this rock to look "normal" you'll love it. If you're wanting instant live rock gratification then go another route, and also get your wallet!

Eco-Rock Rocks!!!

Finally upgrading from a 55g to a custom 125g. This was my first purchase for my build since I was planning on cooking the rock for a couple months. The Pukani was out of stock and I'm kinda glad lol. Got 75lbs and was packaged very well, less than one handful of rubble total from 3 25lb boxes. The rock is very clean with many crevices and cool shapes! I got 2 huge pieces, 8 medium, and about 8 small. Should be perfect for 2 islands with caves and overhangs. Can't wait to aquascape!!!

Great Rock Product

Rock came extremely well packaged and had some nice big pieces in it that were easy to aquascape. Big pieces turn into other pieces pretty easily and they all fit together just like they should. It was clean, very clean. I did just a quick rinse and added it to the tank. I tested the water the day before I added and again two days after and it didn't effect water parameters at all

Great dry base rock

Lot's of big pieces with lot's of nooks and crannies. They're going to look awesome as they start to get encrusted. If you're in the market for base rock this is an Eco-Friendly way to get it.
