CaribSea LifeRock is made of an aragonitic base rock, instead of the typical cement used by many other artificial rock creators. Every rock contains a network of micro and macro pores that intertwine within the rocks internal structure creating the perfect environment for natural nitrifying bacteria. LifeRock is manmade and does not affect our natural resources, making it the perfect option for all marine fish, invertebrates, and corals.
Every LifeRock from CaribSea has an artificial coating and texture that mimics natural coralline algae after being in the ocean for years. Depending on the animals that you have in your aquarium, they may pick at the coating on the rocks which will not harm them at all, and over time live coralline algae will cover any spots on the rocks that may have had the coating picked off.

How much rock do I need?
Knowing exactly how much Dry Live Rock you will need can be one of the hardest questions to answer since every tank and rock will be slightly different. A general guideline for dry Live Rock, we suggest 1 pound of rock per gallon of display tank volume and may vary depending on your overall goal for the aquascape. We always recommend purchasing a little extra dry rock to ensure that you will have enough to complete the aquascape you are looking for, any extra rock can always be broken up and placed in your refugium, overflows, and sump for added filtration.

Shipping: All rock can be fragile. BRS makes every effort to securely pack any type of rock. However, we have no control how UPS handles it and it may break during shipping. Unfortunately, this is not covered by insurance so we are unable to replace broken pieces.
Great looking but consider this... By Gregg on 10/23/2019Gregg would recommend this product to a friendI agree with the product description except it states 5-7 pieces for 20 lbs, I received 4. Just realize the rock is sold by weight so that will determine amount of pieces which could be less than 5. I did receive the correct weight. I like the rock so consider ordering more weight than you think you need since individual, fill in pieces are not available.
Never by Live rock again! By Broc on 9/21/2019Broc would recommend this product to a friendPlain and simple after 15 years of reefing the best rock around! No nasty hitchhikers, phenomenal surface area, easy to lock together, loaded with bacteria. I had some wonderful live rock that after 10 years was obviously loaded with nutrients. So it was time to cook the rock, but I saw an add for this. I decided to do a 100% rock change out, and guess what, no tank parameters changed. Cooking rock would take months, this was instant. I'm out 1 year and i'm loving it. I'll never by live rock ever again.
Great rock, but not as bright as the picture. By Benjamin on 8/31/2019Benjamin would recommend this product to a friendI got a lot of rock from a 40lb box, which I was super happy about. Now only did I get a lot of pieces, but the pieces were very large and easily fit together to make large structures. The only problem I have is the color in the picture. The color is still purple, but not a bright as the picture. Don't get me wrong, the rock still looks and fits amazingly.
