Fiji's Best Saltwater Aquarium Live Rock – 25 lb. Box

Fiji’s Best Saltwater Aquarium Live Rock is handpicked high-quality live rock collected from marine environments in Fiji. This marine live rock is cured once it arrives from Fiji to preserve coralline algae and other beneficial organisms present on the rock.

The average weight of each piece of rock is between 3 to 5 lbs. The rocks are carefully packaged inside a 14" x 11" x 9" box insulated with plastic to preserve the beneficial bacteria, micro and macro flora/fauna. Boxes weigh approximately 25 lbs and are shipped via 2 Day service to ensure freshness. Just select ground shipping during checkout and we'll upgrade you to 2Day service at no additional cost.

Placing live rock inside a salt water aquarium has been one of the methodologies that has lead to widespread success within the hobby. The porous open structure of Fiji’s Best Live Rock allows the rock to host a wide array of beneficial bacteria, micro and macro flora which are crucial for biological filtration in marine fish-only and reef aquarium systems. Each box contains rocks in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes.

Most pieces feature naturally formed pores that aid in water circulation and provide natural hiding places for fish and invertebrate. Pieces range from sandy-colored to brown, green, maroon and purple depending on the amount of coralline algae, plant and sponge coverage.

The arrangement of the décor inside your aquarium—the placement of rocks, plants and corals, for example—is typically referred to as the aquascape. Aquascaping your aquarium using Fiji’s Best will allow you to create a natural base to place coral and other invertebrate. Light-loving corals can be placed on higher platforms while low-light or non-synthetic coral can be place midway down, underneath archways or inside caves. Corals that demand different levels of water flow can also be meticulously placed in this fashion.

Buy live rock from Fiji’s Best to add a greater level of biodiversity to your reef aquarium ecosystem. Sponges, plants, starfish, mollusks, worms and crustaceans are common hitchhikers that begin appearing in tanks once the rock has been established. Hitchhikers help your aquarium by filtering water, eating detritus and/or acting as a food source for other animals.

We typically recommend 1 to 2 lbs. of live rock per gallon, depending on the look you’re trying to achieve. Although our Fiji live rock is pre-cured, we recommend re-curing the rock upon arrival for best results. Pieces may rub against each other during transport so a small bit of rubble might be present inside the shipping box.

Live rock can be secured together inside your aquarium using reef glues & epoxies, cable/zip ties or plastic pipes to build stunning aquascapes that replicate coral reefs found in nature.

For more information about aquascaping your aquarium with live rock, please read The Fundamentals of Live Rock in Aquascaping.

Comments: Although this rock has nice structure,it's devoid of all life. been in the hobby for 25 years,and any time I've bought live rock its teaming with life.This rock may have been live at some point but when it arrived was simply dried out rock,not cured,just dried dead rock.

Comments: After reading a number of the other reviews, I didn't have terribly high hopes, but when I opened the box, I was quite happy. It included at least 30#s of awesome large coral skeletons, the rest was smaller rubble type pieces that I put in my sump, all with a good amount of coralline algae. The rock certainly needs to be cycled, but that was expected.

Comments: The 50lb box of live rock was outstanding. Nice looking rock, packaged well and wet. The 25lb box however was dry. Also the live rock was delivered a day ahead of schedule. Glad someone was available to submerse it.

Comments: The rock that I recieved does not look like the Fiji rock I thought I was purchasing. Also there was about 2 to 3 pounds that was broke. And now I have a issue with brown algea which I have never had in my tank. Any way I guess this is the risk you take when you dont see what you are ordering when it comes to this type of purchase.

Comments: Received my order yesterday and the rock is UGLY, it has a good amount of corallines but the rock is all dense shelf rock that was once larger pieces that were broken in to a bunch of triangles. Not very natural looking at all. Looks absolutely nothing like the picture. After it seeds my dry rock 90% is going to my sump.

Comments: For the first thing I want to say is that this isn't real Fuji love rock, this is cultured live rock. When I received the rock it was completely dry which baffled me. I proceeded to cure the rock for an additional three days after receiving it and still do not see any life on the rock whatsoever. I'm very disappointed in that there wasn't any macroalgae or sponges. I would be happy if I even found a hitchhiker of some sort. Not at all what I expected.

Fiji's best?

Experience Level: Expert


Comments: If this is supposed t6o be Fiji's best rock then I suggest you go somewhere else to get live rock. While the rock is very porous and will eventually host lots of beneficial bacteria etc. after a week I have yet to identify anything living that came on the rock. No algae, no critters, nothing. Suggest you spend your money on base rock versus wasting it on this.
