CaribSea Top quality Phillipine base rock, clean and nicely sized from baseball to softball size

South Seas Lace Rock is a great new aquascaping rock that we are excited to be offering. South Seas had much more structure than any other commonly available aquascaping rock and is much more porous than other as well. South Seas is a calcium carbonate base rock that is very similar to actual reef rock and at one point actually was, although it is obtained terrestrially from ancient coral reefs underground. South Seas will make the perfect alternative to live rock or can provide a very attractive base for live rock.


Please Note: Each box will contain a variety of rocks of different sizes and shapes. We are unable to take any special requests for rocks of a particular dimension or size. Because of the fragile nature of this rock, it is possible for the rock to break during shipment. We do our best to package the rock sufficiently to minimize damages. As UPS does not consider this item insurable, we are unable to replace or refund damaged pieces. It is possible to attach multiple pieces together using aquarium epoxy in order to make large shelves or repair damaged rock.

This rock is perfect for an African cichlid tank. It's carbonate based, so it will help maintain your pH.

It may take up to 8 weeks to culture healthy nitrifying bacteria colonies in your aquarium. There are a few ways to speed up the process and help it along. You could add a bacteria supplement like Brightwell Aquatics Microbacter7 Bioculture. he only way to know for sure that your tank is ready for more livestock is to test it with a test kit like the Salifert Nitrogen Cycle Test Kits.

REVIEW
I ordered two 10lbs bags. One had two large pieces and the other had three medium (softball size) pieces. Very minimal break off with just a couple little chunks in the bag and box. This will be perfect for my new 20g!

REVIEW
I have to admit, looking the way the box arrived after the gentle hands of UPS, I thought I'd find gravel rather than rock, but thanks to the shipping experts at Marine Depot, the interior box was fine. I didn't use this as base rock, I used it for display rock. Nice large and medium pieces, one o...Read More
