Shortened running-in phase - long-term stable microclimate

Until now, there was no alternative to living rock. Then, the LifeRocks from CaribSea came along. Fossil aragonite rock with a bacterial coating that even shortens the running-in phase compared to the live rocks and creates a long-term stable microclimate. And all that without ecological concerns, with a lower nutrient load and an incredible freedom of creation. Create spectacular bridges and crossings with the arched LifeRock Arches. The shape of the reef makes it easy for the water to flow through and for the fish to swim through. Placed sideways or upside down, there are further applications such as as a base for cave systems with the possibility of retreat within the reef.

Unique in every way

Made from real aragonite base rock, Life Rocks are sourced from fossil reef sections that have dried out naturally, meaning that no two pieces are the same. Once harvested, they are coloured with special pigments to simulate the appearance of live rock encrusted in coralline algae and to match any underwater landscape.

An optimal marine environment

In comparison to manmade and sculptured rocks, Life Rocks contain a network of deep micro- and macro-structures that replicate the exact conditions found in a natural marine environment. This extensive surface area allows essential denitrifying bacteria to thrive, which creates a cleaner aquarium with consistent water parameters.

Maturity in record time

Life Rocks help to build up a thriving colony of micro-flora and micro-fauna and create a mature marine environment much quicker than artificial methods or other products. This keeps tank maintenance, nitrogen cycle fluctuations and the risk of disease for marine life to a minimum.

The sustainable alternative to live rock

As a natural filter, live rock is highly sought-after by aquarium hobbyists. The problem is that with demand outstripping supply, live rock is sometimes mined from living coral, which can be extremely destructive. By contrast, Life Rocks are sourced from a sustainable environment via a method that has zero impact on underwater ecosystems. They contain no silicon and the pigments used are selected for their non-toxic properties, making them 100% safe for all marine life.

A helping hand to kick-start the process

Life Rocks are pre-infused with bacteria that lay dormant until the rocks are placed in the aquarium, which allows for dry transportation and storage. Once activated, the bacteria work to bring the ammonia levels in the water down to zero. The result is a living, breathing reef that creates the perfect microclimate for marine life.

Product information

Available in a range of shapes and sizes, Life Rocks meet all your aquascaping needs. Life Rock Original, for example, is a versatile product that can be placed or stacked in simple and complex configurations for outstanding biological filtration. Shelf Rock enables you to create spectacular caves and ledges, while Belize Branches mimic the look of stony reefs. The XL Arch, Shapes, Mega Arch and Mega Cave are perfect for creating decorative and functional landscapes in larger aquariums. Life Rocks can even be broken up and added to a refugium, sump or overflow for extra filtration.

Included: 1 box with one large arch
CaribSea rocks are packed loosely in cardboard boxes. This means that in case of parcel shipment (e.g. DHL, UPS, FedEx, Hermes, etc.) the rocks may break or parts may chip off. This depends on how the shipping service provider handles the parcels. This is part of the shipping process for rocks and is therefore not a reason for complaint. If you do not want the rocks to be transported in this way, please order the rocks from your dealer with pallet shipping. This is more expensive, but ensures that the boxes are better secured during transport.
