Live Rock is Very Necessary for a Successful Saltwater Aquarium.
Live rock is the perfect host for a wide variety of good bacteria and micro and macro flora/fauna. It is crucial for a strong biological
filtration in any type of saltwater aquarium (fish only), or Reef Aquarium(live coral, inverts and fish). Live Rock is easy to maintain in the aquarium and excellent for both the beginner to
the expert aquarist. Live Rock requires moderate lighting and moderate water movement, along with the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, and trace elements. After that, go ahead and design the
aquariums rock structure which is called Aquascaping Your Aquarium. When you use the best Live Rock you guarantee yourself you will have a great looking natural structure to place your live coral and fancy
invertebrates on. Live rock can be altered when needed by using a hammer and chisel. Just be sure to wear safety goggles. Rocks can be put together inside your aquarium using many available reef glues & epoxies,
just use your imagination. Create your rock structures to include higher areas for corals and invertebrates requiring stronger light, along with midway and lower areas for lower light corals
and invertebrates. When creating your palace in the ocean include any necessary power heads and hide them within the rock to provide your live coral the extra water flow needed. The final result, an amazing corner
of the ocean replicating the underwater beauty found in the oceans around the world. Due to variations in live rock, please expect differences in size and shape. Newly shipped live rock will not contain much color. As
long as your tank parameters are kept in good check coralline colors will become evident on the live rock over time but it doesn't happen overnight. Please be patient. If you wish immediate purple colored rock we
suggest you purchase a artificial live rock we sell called "RealReef Rock". RealReef Rock comes with lifelike purple coloration applied to the surface of the rock. Once your aquarium has established itself you will
start noticing aquatic life showing up. What you say? Things like tiny sponges will start growing, saltwater plants, tiny starfish, interesting gorgonian's, crustaceans and fan worms will be seen. All this bio-diversity
is what matures your tank, filtering your water and eating unwanted bits of food (called detritus) and of course all those little shrimps and copepod's that start showing up are a great food source for many of your
desired aquarium livestock.

This is normal and is a result of transportation to your door. The small amount of rubble can help to seed your new aquariums, or can be added to the refugium to establish hiding places for copapods and other micro-fauna.
