Our Dried reef rock is available in 10 & 20kg boxes (large quantities available on request)
Dry vs Wet
You're setting up a new aquarium and are having the internal argument about what rock to use!
There is no right or wrong answer to this, it’s down to the individual (although our dried reef rock is not harvested and left to dry, it’s collected from a sustainable source) so dried reef rock is more environmentally friendly!
It also has the advantage of minimising the risk of introducing those nasty unwanted pests and algae that can easily find their way into your aquarium when using wet live rock. These can be the headache of all headaches when they manifest themselves within an aquarium, which is why many aquarists are now opting for the dried rock approach.
With the abundance of bacto-boosters available on the market today, your dried rock can be as effective, just as quickly as it’s wet counterpart.
Even without the use of bacteria boosting your dried rock will be as effective after a 6-8 week curing as live wet rock, we recommend that your rock is cured in heated saltwater with a 100% water change somewhere in the middle.
We would always advise a thorough soaking of your dried rock (in RODI water) before adding to your aquarium, this would clear any dust that has formed and give chance for any remaining dead organics to detach before adding to your aquarium.
A mix of different size and shapes of rock will be sent depending on availability.
Please note that the colour of the rock may vary from that displayed.

- Amazing value for money – Review by Andrew (Posted on 28/12/2018)
I'd been searching for about a fortnight for dried reef rock - and this was the only place that delivered what they said
Excellent quality, and amazing price - needed one big piece for my 10 Gallon tank and received a quality piece to chisel down to size
Trust me - this is THE only place to get quality dried reef rock in the UK
Will be coming back to them again
- Excellent as always – Review by Tropicaltone (Posted on 20/07/2018)
- As always iquatics delivered quickly and the selection and quality of reef rock was excellent. The rock needs to be cleaned and soaked before use but it's not as dirty as some suppliers of dry rock.
- Spot on Rock – Review by James (Posted on 15/06/2018)
- Ordered this pack for my Innovative Marine Nuvo Fusion 30L and I have to say the product is fantastic. I got sent a great selection of rocks some great plate pieces, some big boulders and plenty of filler pieces. It has really made my marine aquarium look stunning. The only thing that will make it look better now is some salty water and some fish! Service was great will highly recommend in the future.
