Nano Tank Live Rock


Choosing the right live rock for your nano reef is very important. It will be your main source of biological filtration, and will create the entire look for your nano reef. We recommend Bali Alor as the best live rock for Nano Tank Aquariums. Alor Liverock is made from ancient encrusted coral heads, the corals that were broken in storms, that have fallen and were encrusted with coraline algae over time. It is very beautiful and very light weight! The advantages of using Bali Alor Live Rock is the incredible diversity of coloration, and unique shapes. It is also lighter than Fiji Premium Live Rock so you need to purchas less rock. For Alor Live Rock we recommend only 1-1/2 pounds per gallon where Fiji rock would require 2 pounds or more per gallon to look the same. For aquascaping, it is acceptable to alter the shapes and sizes of the rock with a hammer and chisel. This will not damage the integrity of the rock, nor it's inhabitants. Please, just make sure you wear safety glasses. Bali Alor Nano live rock will color up with more unique colors than Fiji rock. You will see purple, pink, red, yellow, and green coralline algae.

When rocking your reef tank, it is acceptable to combine a few different islands rock. You may also alter the sizes and shape of your live rock with a hammer and chisel. This will not damage the integrity of the rock, nor it's inhabitants. Please be careful to wear eye protection if you are chiseling live rock.

You pay only for the weight of the live rock, not the weight of the packaging. Unlike some other online dealers, Aquatic Connection Live does not count the box and all packaging materials as part of the live rock weight ordered. 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.

Live Rock is easy to maintain in either a reef or fish only aquarium, and makes an excellent addition for both the beginner or experienced aquarist. Fiji rock requires moderate lighting and moderate water movement, along with the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, and trace elements.

Important: Adding Live Rock to a tank who already has fish or coral in it ? Although our live rock has been treated ,cleaned, and pre-cured, it is imperative to do a final cure of any live rock
from any supplier, upon receipt, before it is placed in the display aquarium that contains fish, coral, or inverts.
