is one of the most popular available varieties. Aquatic Connection
handpicks all of Live Rock to assure you receive only premium
grade. We sort based on size and overall appearance and coralline
algae coverage. It may have been flown in as Premium, but there
is always an amount that does not meet our standards. This rock
is pulled and sold as foundation rock, and sump rock. The remaining
true premium Fiji rock is then placed in our vats of fresh synthetic
seawater, re-hydrated, and when the orders come in, we carefully
package each piece, and place them in an insulated cooler like
container, and then that goes in a final corugated shipping box.
Fiji rock contains many interesting shapes depending on where
it is collected from on the reef. We see both oblong and boulder
like shapes, fused colonies that are the result of ancient coral
colonies along with ombination of all the descriptions above.
Every piece is unique and a celebration of the oceans ability
to create beauty from nature. Coralline algae will be on the
rock face of each piece. This coraline algae will become part
of the beauty of the aquarium, once introduced into your tank.
All orders are handpicked , then hand packaged, first
wrapped in plastic and paper for cushioning, then we pack all
orders in a styrofoam container and styro foamies for extra cushioning.
Rock is easy to maintain in the aquarium, and makes an excellent candidate for

lighting and moderate water movement, along with the addition
of calcium, strontium, iodine, and trace elements.
