What Is Aquarium Live Rock?

When talking about live rock (LR), it is a misconception that the rock itself is alive. What makes it live are the many forms of micro and macroscopic marine life that live on and inside of it. The rock itself is only made up of the calcium carbonate skeletons of long dead corals, or other calcareous organisms. There are different types of live rock. In J. Charles Delbeek's article "Your First Reef Aquarium", published in Aquarium USA in 1994, under the Live Rock section he refers to "reef rock" basically as pieces of coral or coral rock from outside the reef that have broken off and fallen to the bottom that then becomes covered with encrusting organisms, such as coraline algae and sponges. "Inshore rock" Delbeek refers to as rock from inside the reef that has a tendency to be more dense and becomes covered with macroalgae, clams, mussels, crabs, shrimps, and other unwanted organisms. In Delbeek's view, reef rock is much more desirable then inshore rock because it cycles more quickly and stabilizes a tank much faster.

Live Rock Differences

We carry 12 different types of live rock, coming from many locations around the world. Differences in the rock physical make up from area to area, make for different coraline algae colors to become the dominant colors as the rock matures in your tank. For example, Fiji live rock is predominantly covered with a purple coraline growth once matured, Tonga , and Carribbean live rock is more rainbow colored, and Marshall Island live rock, has more red , orange, and yellow coraline algae growth than the others.

We purchase only the nicest live rock from some of the best sources. Once collected, all our Live Rock is placed in high current ocean vats, not just misted with water. We make sure it is flown off the island, not shipped which other suppliers do, (often shipping live rock by boat delays shipments from 4-6 weeks). We then treat our live rock in 600 gallon vats with the right chemistry and large skimmers , it's an almost zero ammonia enviroment for our live rock to thrive in. This removes unwanted organisms, while adding nourishment to the existing life forms we wish to have flourish.
