Live Rock isn’t a concert but a type of rock to add to a saltwater fish aquarium. In some sense, it can be seen as coral-light. It’s not quite as difficult to cultivate as most types of coral, but it is far more exciting than dropping an inert stone into your aquarium. At Coral Reef Farm, you can find the gamut: an extensive variety of live rock as well as coral.
Live rock sounds like something of an oxymoron. In truth, the rock itself is not alive. What is alive are macro and microscopic creatures that live either within the rock or attached to the rock base. The rock is not unrelated to coral—it is often a piece of dead coral in which other organisms have taken up home. There are a number of live rock varieties available. Coral Reef farm offers live rock via a certain location or type of rock, such as base rock. Base rock is, indeed, is useful as a base for a live coral system.
If you have saltwater fish from a certain location, it is a good idea to get live rock from a similar ecosystem. That’s why Coral Reef Farm has nearly as many varieties of live rock as we do species of fish. The amazing thing about saltwater aquariums is that no two are alike. Choosing one or more of our unique varieties of live rock and saltwater fish species will ensure that you have a unique and eye-catching aquarium.
Though live rock isn’t necessarily as exciting or awe-inspiring as coral, it is enormously useful. The bacteria and invertebrates present in live rock help to maintain the quality of your aquarium water. At the same time, you want to make sure that any live rock does not introduce any bacteriological life that threatens the life of an aquarium ecosystem. We will help you choose the right live rock for your aquarium habitat.
Coral Reef Farm offers cured live rock, meaning that it can be used in a saltwater aquarium right away. Our Fiji live rock is particularly popular and of a better quality than you’ll find at other suppliers. Just as you don’t want to buy coral frags in place of whole live coral, you don’t want small pieces of live rock. You can purchase live rock pieces as small as three inches and as large as a foot across.
If you are a beginning hobbyist, the care level of live rock is much easier than most types of coral. It is highly recommended for beginning hobbyists. Yet, due to its water-cleaning properties, it is useful for advanced aquariums as well. You can be certain when ordering live rock from Coral Reef farm that you’ll get the safest, cleanest, and often the most colorful live rock available from any live rock supplier.
