AquaMaxx Eco-Rock Dry Live Rock Information




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!

Comments: After reading many reviews and the need for more rock in my reef, I ordered a 25lb box of this rock. It bears repeating, this stuff in nice! Very large porous hunks. Three to be exact. Packaging was bordering on ocd. Bubble wrap and pellets. Nothing broke. Very little dust and break off. I'll be cooking these up shortly and reaquascaping my tank. I considered adding one piece at a time with a quick rinse too, just not sure of the implications...better be safe than sorry. Buy it, you'll be impressed!

Comments: I was surprised at how one can stack the rock and have it keep in place. I also liked the fact that it was very clean and did not cause any "fogging" of the water. I plan of having seahorses in the tank and the live rocks have so many places for baby seahorses to hide makes me optimistic about their chances of survival. I highly recommend it and just want to add that so far I have a great deal of trust of the people (company) at Marine Depot and the products they sell. Mike

Comments: Looks Great. Only suggestion is to offer small, med and large as it is very difficult to break down large pieces into smaller ones for a small tank.

Comments: Just got the rock - the box was smashed in on one end and there was a baseball size hole in it, so I feared the worst but the rock was packed so well that there was very little breakage evident. This rock was the 2nd batch I purchased - didn't get enough the first time - and I got the first batch from another supplier. The first batch was full of large interesting shapes but intraday has to clean it well - it was full of debris. The rock was marine depot was dry, clean and free of any debris... Total opposite of the other I received. Much less work to get it into the tank. If I needmore rock in the future, I'll definitely buy this again!

Comments: This rock is very porous, has great shape, and is about as cheap as you're going to find anywhere. I ordered 10 lbs and it came as one big piece. Highly recommend.
