Real Reef Rock is our standard reef building rock. It comes in a
variety of sizes from 4"-12". It is very light, porous and full of
holes and crevices. It is three dimensional in shape and comes in many
natural shades of purple, pink and red. It replicates the look, feel and
function of coralline encrusted coral skeleton rock. It�s made from all
natural reef eco friendly materials and grown in greenhouses to become a
bio-active rock, without the nuisance pests and hitch hikers commonly
found on wild rock. This rock is great for Marine Reef and Fish only
aquariums. Not suggested for Freshwater, as it holds a high stable pH.
Rock is then dried and packaged for shipping.

Real Reef is made of 100% natural eco friendly green materials.
Materials composed of the same mineral building blocks as coral skeleton
live rock, without the environmental damage to the World�s Coral reefs.
Real Reef is composed of several different types of mineral aggregates
and sand. Some are very similar to high end media used in modern Calcium
Reactor dosing systems. Real Reef is high in Calcium Carbonate, with
amounts in the 82-85% range. Unlike coral skeleton which is primarily
Calcium Carbonate, Real Reef contains a variety of essential trace
elements and minerals. This remaining 15-18% consists of minerals and
trace elements such as: Magnesium, Strontium and Iron.
over 13 steps to manufacturer Real Reef Rock and every piece is unique
and different, but not ugly! No two pieces are the same, just like
Mother Nature! Real Reefs multiple ingredients are bonded together with
natural calcium based binders; we do not use any chemical or synthetic
epoxies or glue. It is through this labor intensive proprietary Patent
Pending process that makes Real Reef mimic some of the best coral Live
Rock shapes the aquarium industry has seen!
Real Reef�s beautiful
shades of Purple, Pink and Red come from a water based non-toxic
natural pigment. These proprietary pigments are injected and applied
through several techniques and processes. Every piece of Real Reef is
hand made by our Artisans here at our U.S. facility with pride and
creativity. Real Reef is made, grown in the U.S.A and always will be!
the Real Reef Rocks are created, they go through a pre grow-out
preparation. This pre grow-out freshwater curing process lasts for a
minimum of 12 weeks. Once the rock has completed the curing process, it
is then transferred to saltwater grow-out for a minimum of 12-16 weeks.
Our marine grow-out facility consists of large 3,000 and 10,000 gallon
fiberglass raceways in our climate controlled greenhouses. It is in
these filtered closed system raceways that Real Reef becomes a
biologically active aquarium rock. It is from these grow-out raceway
systems that Real Reef is prepared, packed and shipped to distributors
and retailers worldwide.
