Why Real Reef?
Real Reef is a 100% coral reef eco-friendly product made and farmed in the U.S.A. This green product is made from natural materials, with the same building blocks as wild coral skeleton live rock. Real Reef Rock allows the aquarist a natural realistic alternative to wild live rock, without destroying the coral reef habitat. Get all the benefits of wild live rock and more without compromising the future of our hobby and the coral reef habitat.
Real Reef is some of the most beautiful live rock the hobby has ever seen. Whether in a reef or fish only aquarium, Real Reef stays purple dead or alive. The product is pigmented with non-toxic colors to duplicate the most beautiful encrusting coralline algae mother-nature has produced.
Real Reef`s various shades of purple, pink and red allow for the aquarist to have the coralline encrusted reef or fish aquarium they always dreamed overnight. Not only does it look incredible, but functions better than it`s wild counterpart as a natural filter, trace element, calcium and alkalinity provider.
Real Reef Rock is a made of 100% natural marine friendly ingredients. Its components are made of the same building blocks which wild coral and living reef rock are composed of. The ingredients are not taken from the ocean and as a result there is zero environmental impact to the world`s coral reefs or marine habitat. Our product is also grown here in the U.S. in closed systems, which also avoids additional environmental impact to the ocean environment via mariculture or ocean farming.
The end result is a 100% natural eco friendly Live Rock alternative for the consumer, made and grown in the U.S.A product that consistently looks better than any of its wild or ocean cultured counterparts.
In addition to its great looks and its eco-friendliness, Real Reef Rock is very light, porous and full of holes and crevices. It is three dimensional in shape and comes in many natural shades of purple, pink and red. It replicates the look, feel and function of coralline encrusted coral skeleton rock. It’s made from all natural reef eco friendly materials and grown in greenhouses to become a bio-active rock, without the nuisance pests and hitch hikers commonly found on wild rock. This rock is great for Marine Reef and Fish only aquariums. Not suggested for Freshwater, as it holds a high stable pH.
