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.
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

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. Its 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.

places for copepods and other micro-fauna.
