30LBS Premium Cherry Picked Florida Deco Live Rock (Shipping Included)
Choose the Live Rock That Suits Your Style
Usually, we try and make live rock match the size of a tank. 10 gallons to 10 pounds, 20LBS to 20, etc. but the larger you get sometimes you just want a little space. We went off of gallon size, but we'd recommend a chunk of 30-gallon rock for anything over that. The reason being is that you don't often see a packed reef environment. Anyone who has ever scuba dived or snorkeled knows that you can find a whole ecosystem in a random rocky outlet with the angels happily circling their "spot."
Depending on the type of fish you want to get, this could easily fit in a huge 100-gallon tank and make the fish just as happy! Do a little research, or ask us, and get some aquascaping tips before you decide on the amount of rock you need. Keep in mind that the more coral you get, the larger it will grow anyways!
I got my rocks! I had them in the water by 10 am.
OMG! I have all kinds of creatures! Some I don't even know what they are!
One rock has this giant cucumber,.his mouth is wide open and he spit at me!
Then several rocks have some kind of clam or mollusk on them, big ones! They move when I get close with my hand,
Then I have a pretty little tube fan worm, although I'm not sure he's going to make it, his worm seems ok, but he can't seem to pull his fan inside the tube.
But he is reacting and turning the fan a little toward the flow.
I found brittle stars,.tiny crabs,.lots of little thingsworms etc.lot's of sponges left on the rock. And one very tall sponge,it pokes out of the tank.
Should I trim off the part that's out of the water? Or leave it? I thought you said sponges die after being out of the water.?
This is very very exciting!
Thank you so so much!
