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.

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 3 Day service to ensure freshness. Just select ground shipping during checkout and we`ll upgrade you to 3 Day 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 the live rock is pre-cured at its origin in Fiji, you will want to 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.

REVIEW
Not sure how this rock has any bad reviews. I've been in the hobby for 12 years now and this rock is perfect for a new reef tank. Enough dead material to get the cycle started while still having plenty of life. Some of the other reviews had complaints about the shape. Honestly, I used the order comm...Read More

REVIEW
This was my first time getting live rock shipped to me. It was packaged and wrapped pretty well, however the rock was dry. I'm not sure if this is normal, though. Anyway, the rock looks good. Lots of large pieces considering I ordered 25lbs.

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.

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 ...Read More
