Drs. Foster & Smith's Select Fiji Premium rock is the highest grade of Fiji rock available. We are able to provide the freshest and most colorful live rock available anywhere, because this rock is flown in directly from Fiji on a weekly basis. Be warned, you may find cheaper sources for Fiji Premium rock elsewhere, but the rock is cheap for a reason because its been in a shipping container for three to six weeks! We call this cheaper Fiji rock Boat Rock because the rock is placed in cargo containers on a ship which sails out of the port of Suva in Fiji and arrives in the United States three to six weeks later!

We start by Flying in our Select Fiji Premium Live rock weekly, and deal with one of the best collectors in Fiji, who grades the rock based on shape and coralline algae coverage. Once the rock is picked up from the airport in Los Angeles California we then unpack each and every piece of Drs. Foster & Smith's Select Fiji Premium Rock and sort the rock again. Each piece is then hand picked by our experienced packaging crew based on the overall appearance and coralline algae coverage. The rock is then re-hydrated in fresh synthetic seawater, and carefully packaged in an insulated shipping box. Depending on the location of harvest this rock may be in boulder and oblong shapes, or fused branches of ancient Proites colonies, and is 70-90% covered in Coralline algae on the top or show side of each piece. A small amount of rubble may be present upon receipt of the box as this is normal and is a result of transportation. The rubble can help to seed new aquariums, or can be added to the refugium to establish hiding places for copepods and other micro-fauna.

Examples of Fiji Live Rock during the curing process The average size of each rock in a 22 and 45 pound box varies between 6 and 14 inches. The recommended amount of Live Rock for an aquarium is 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 pounds per gallon. This amount will create a beautiful aquascape, and add the biodiversity that many enthusiasts demand in their mini ecosystem. Drs. Foster & Smith Select Fiji Premium Rock is mainly oval or round in shape, and makes a great foundation rock for any marine aquarium. 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.

Fiji Premium Rock will benefit not only reef aquariums, but also 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.

Please refer to our Live Rock/Sand Acclimation Guide to ensure a successful introduction to your tank.
