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 display

We have specialist pieces of plating rock available if you would like more information on these pieces please get in touch.

Good Value, fast delivery – Review by JW (Posted on 29/11/2018)

Nice rock – Review by Froggie (Posted on 28/10/2018)
I'm very pleased with this rock, there is a very nice mix of sizes and shapes. I mixed it with a few pieces of live rock, it as blended well. this dried rock is very good value for the money its light so there is a good amount of it. When I added fish to the tank I used live nitrifying bacteria so that the tank was cycled very quickly about 4-5 days. A very Good buy would buy again if needed.
