  "Real Reef" Fully Cured Live Rock
A bio-active live rock, a truely "green product"!!

Every year there is more and more demand for aquarium live rock. Finally there is an answer with a zero environmental impact to the worlds reefs! "Real Reef" Live Rock is the industries answer to our hobbies increased demand for aquarium rock. "Real Reef " Live 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. The 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.

"Real Reef" Live Rock does not harbor nuisance or parasitic algaes, inverts and unwanted hitch hikers. Wild live rock inherently is covered and impregnated with undesirable pests and decaying organic matter. In most cases wild live rock is not alive, as it died crossing the Pacific by boat.

"Real Reef" offers the aquarist a clean biologically active rock, which mitigates all the issues of wild live rock, including the process of waiting for the death to subside, AKA curing.

"Real Reef" Rock is our standard reef building rock. It 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.

"Real Reef" Live Rock is for both the beginner through the expert aquarist. Easily maintained, "Real Reef" Live Rock requires moderate lighting and also a moderate level of water movement. The chemistry required to keep live rock doing well are the same as any other live rock. The addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, and trace elements will help grow and maintain coralline algae growth.

"Real Reef" rock is sold in 25 pound boxes. Your "Real Reef" Live Rock will arrive with sizes between 5 and 16 inches. We recommend between 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 pounds per gallon for a beautifully aquascaped aquarium.

Real Reef Shelf Rock is "Real Reef's" version of the shelf or slab rock e imported from the Kingdom of Tonga for many years. The Real Reef Team used Tonga Shelf as model to replicate and the results are so similar to the old Tonga Shelf that most think it is the real thing! If you always liked the look of true Tonga Shelf, without the environmental reef impact, than this is the rock for you!

Works great for adding shelfs to your existing or planned aquascape. Great for creating shelfs to accommodate frags, clams and other marine life needing a flat surface. Made from the same all natural calcium based ingredients as Real Reef Rock and functions great as a natural filter or growing surface.

The whole "Real Reef" Live Rock Story

Real Reef is a trademarked patent pending American aquacultured bio-active living reef aquarium rock. Real Reef is a 100% environmentally friendly Live Rock substitute. It is a clean calcium carbonate rock with great buffering ability, shape, color and everything else you like in a great live reef rock. Most Aquarists think it's better than the real thing! It's time as a hobby and industry we start looking into the future and protect this hobby we all love so much. Best of all, there is no curing required, making it easy to use by all aquarists!

Note: A small amount of rubble may be present upon receipt of the box as this is normal and is a result of transportation. The rubble can help to seed new aquariums, or can be added to the refugium to establish hiding places for copepods and other micro-fauna. 

Photos are representative of each species. Each animal is unique and variations should be expected.
