Fiji Premium rock is a dense rock, with the average size of the Large rock is between 9 and 20 inches. The recommended amount of Live Rock for an aquarium is 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 pounds per gallon, which will create a beautiful aquascape, and add the biodiversity that many enthusiasts demand in their mini ecosystem. For aquascaping, it is acceptable to alter the shapes and sizes of the rock with a hammer and chisel. This will not damage the integrity of the rock, nor it's inhabitants. This type of live rock is composed of very porous calcium carbonate. Under proper lighting conditions, exposed areas of the live rock will become covered in mostly purple coralline algae. Fiji Premium Rock is mainly oval or round in shape, and makes a great foundation rock for any marine aquarium.
Fiji Premium Rock is beneficial for both reef aquariums and fish-only tanks. Live rock will provide a natural food source for some fish, aid in the breakdown of waste produced by aquarium inhabitants, and create a foundation for live corals or decorations in a fish-only aquarium. Many beneficial life forms such as plants, worms, sponges, starfish, crustaceans, and mollusks will appear after several months in the aquarium.
Fiji Premium Rock is easy to maintain in the aquarium, and makes an excellent candidate for the beginner to the expert aquarist. This type of rock requires moderate lighting and moderate water movement, along with the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, and trace elements.
It is imperative to cure the rock again upon receipt, before it is placed in the display aquarium that contains fish, coral, or inverts.
