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!

Q
Do you have to cure this rock before adding it to an established tank. Like soaking it in ro or baking it for months? Can I just rinse it off and add strait to the tank
Just want to know if I can give this rock a quick rinse and add it to the established tank without it leaching phosphates or any other undesirables into the water

Great Question. The Eco-Rock does not come from the ocean and is pre-cleaned so you do not need to soak it or cure it. Simply give it a quick rinse then add it to your aquarium.

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 ever...Read More

Nice big chunks of rock

REVIEW
This rock looks great in my reef tank. Got one big football sized piece and several smaller pieces maybe the size of two softballs. Easy to scape and glue. Lots of hiding spots for the critters. When my royal gramma was first introduced to the tank it didn't hide in a cave I made, it hid in a hole i...Read More
