CaribSea Life Rock Information




LifeRock™ Don’t just put rocks in your tank, ROCK YOUR REEF with LifeRock™. Amazing porosity, incredible biological performance (drops ammonia like real live rock), and unsurpassed realism make LifeRock™ the best and most cost effective rock choice for any aquarist.

So real, so ready. Are you?

It is safe for all fish and inverts, and is an aragonitic base material (does not contain cement), requires no curing, and is infused with spored, live bacteria. Once placed in water, the dormant bacteria will come alive and begin to colonize: helping to speed up the cycling process. CaribSea Life Rock is colored to simulate real coralline algae so you don`t have to wait 6-8 months for coralline algae to grow to have a mature-looking tank.

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.

Quick Facts
- Great for marine fish-only or reef tanks
- The ultimate liverock alternative
- Eco-Friendly and economical

Comments: Not impressed with this rock at all. I usually use real reef rock and I thought this was an upgrade. I took the 20 lb box and all of the rocks are too big for my Nuvo 20 the Aquascape is very limited. Maybe I got a bad batch not sure but I don't feel good about it.

Comments: Live rock came in what looked to be a LifeRock store display box inside the shipping box. Each rock was wrapped individually with a brown cloth/paper material, which was, I'm guessing, moist at some point. The shipment took about 5 days from Georgia (according to FedEx records), so the wrapping material was completely dryed out. The rocks felt cool to the touch but they were dry. Hope the insides were moist enough to have some bacteria integrity. All the rocks came intact. Very happy with the shapes and sizes. Beautiful color. It exceeded my expectations. Was going to use it as sump material but they are nice enough for my display. Would order again and recommend.

Comments: I was really hesitant to purchase this rock. I bought some fake pieces of rock at other retailers in the past and they have always looked awful! I have a new 75 gallon I need to stock but I decided to just by 20lbs of this to see how I looked. Well, let me just say that this rock blows all of the other live rock out of the water that I have in my other tanks. This rock looks amazing and best of all it looks extremely realistic and it has a dark purple color to it. I will definitely be purchasing more. If you are like me and just aren't sure about this rock... don't hesitate to purchase it. I wish I would have this rock in all of my tanks.

Comments: This live rock is very nice. I orderd 40lbs and it arrived fairly fast. The color on the rock is exactly what I was expecting but 2 of my bigger pieces were broken due to shipping. I know it was damaged in shipping because the box was pretty smashed also, this is why its only 4.5 stars and not 5. It wasn't marine depots fault and the rock comes in 2 boxes one filled with shipping peanuts but 2 of the center pieces were broken in half. All this being said I'd still order from marine depot again, but I might consider not taking part in the free shipping again. Very NICE ROCK!

Comments: I was a bit unsure about this rock at first. I ordered the 40lbs box for my 40 gallon breeder. This rock looks great. Looks like it has been in a tank for years. It does come in some sort of nap sack that kind of sticks to the rock. So you gotta clean this rock good with a brush before putting it in your tank. I would say about half the rock came in cool shapes, the other half was just your ordinary base rock shape. With it being such a dark purple it really makes your tank look amazing from day one, plus prevents a lot of the fresh tank algea because its not super white like dry rock and is difficult for algea to stick too. I cant comment on the dipped in bacteria part because who knows how to test something like that.
