- Sustainably harvested and environmentally friendly. Every purchase helps us to replant coral reefs right here in the U.S. We’ve planted over 43,560 sq. ft. of reef so far. For every 1 lb. of Live Rock you purchase, we will replant 10 lbs. of new reef material.
How Much Premium Live Rock do I Need?
1-1.5 lbs. per gallon is the common ratio used for regular tank habitats.
2 lbs per gallon if your aquarium will be heavily stocked and you tend to over feed your fish regularly or if your Live Rocks will be the only biological filter for the tank and you are not using a sand-bed. The more Live Rock you have the more stable your chemistry will be. Live Rock provides superior biological filtration, and is essential for the long term success of any aquarium.
Choose Aquaculture, and Save our Natural Reefs
Unfortunately not all Live Rock is beneficial to our marine ecosystems. Most commonly available Live Rock is harvested directly from living coral reefs in Fiji and other small island nations in the indo-pacific. Destructive practices such as using dynamite and crowbars to break up these rocks into smaller pieces has decimated reef systems all around the globe. Many nations including the United States and the Bahamas have banned this practice from their waters many years ago, but as long as the US continues to allow the import of Live Rock, there will always be some underdeveloped country willing to break apart their reefs and sell them off to the highest bidders.
By choosing ARC Reef Aquacultured Live Rock, you are helping to end this destructive practice, and support a viable and sustainable option to wild harvested Live Rock. We are losing our reefs at an alarming pace. Our coral reefs are a gift, and once they’re gone, they’re gone forever. For every 1 lb. of Live Rock you purchase, ARC Reef will plant 10 lbs. of new reef material in the ocean. To date we have successfully replanted 43,650 sq. ft. of living coral reefs. We plant these new reefs in areas that a barren and void of any life. We also offer our seed material to government agencies and other non-profits to help aid in boat groundings, bleaching events, and other reef building projects. Don’t let our love for coral reefs mean the end of them.
