IMPORTANT: Do not remove established rock and replace with new dry rock right away or When established rock is removed so is beneficial bacteria. This can cause water parameters to become unstable, which can be harmful to aquarium livestock. To ensure a healthy transition always take some established rock out slowly and replace with dry rock over a 5-30 day period and monitor parameters throughout. This will give the beneficial bacteria time to establish in the new rock before the older established rock is removed. Best practice is to cycle the rock for 1 to 2 weeks before adding any life to the system.
This new base rock from Addictive Reef Keeping is professionally cleaned and dried to ensure no pesky hitchhikers, pests or algae are introduced into your saltwater aquarium. This dry rock is not man-made; it is real calcium carbonate limestone-structured aragonite we quarry in Florida, far away from living coral reefs. It is completely reef-safe and will not leach any undesirable contaminants into your delicate saltwater system. If you ordered colored rock then please also checkout our Touch Up Colorants for after you aquascape so you can cover up the white spots.
This dry rock is super porous with plenty of surface area to grow beneficial nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria to act as a biological filter to help maintain pristine water conditions in your tank. PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST CYCLE THE ROCK BEFORE ADDING LIVE ANIMALS!!!
