Q & A
How much rock should I buy?
If MarcoRocks will be used as your primary biological filtration, the rule of thumb is 1 to1.5 Lbs per gallon. Depending on what type of scape you are looking to build.
If MarcoRocks will not be your primary Bio filter, We would recommend that you let whatever look is pleasing be your guide.
Can I add rock right into my established tank?
What is a cycle and how do I cycle my rock?
Cycle most often refers to one of two things with regard to live rock or base rock...
a) The amount of time before yourrock can act as a biological filter
b) The amount of time before dried organic material and die off is rendered harmless
When cycling a new system I recomend using a bottled bacteria product (BioPronto, FritzZyme Turbo or 9, Microbacter7, etc.) and have had great results over the years.
For some extra bio diversity you can also add a live sand and a small amount of live rock from an established tank to your tank. Because there is no organic material to die off and create ammonia on our rock we ship ammonia chloride with the Fritzyme bacteria, this will act as a food source for that bacteria. During this time you should monitor ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.
Once you see ammonia and nitrite stable at -0- or very near -0- and nitrate on a steady decline, your rock is considered “cycled”.
Rocks was founded in 2006. Spawned out of the belief that our industry needed a responsible "green" alternative to wild collected live rock. We quickly out grew our Mass Location
In 2008 we expanded into a Key Largo location and thanks to your overwhelming support we quickly out grew that location also.
In 2010 we moved to our current location in Homestead Florida, A fully licensed Florida aquaculture facility on over 5 acres.
Now exporting worldwide, we produce all of our own rock products and are the largest producer and shipper of aquarium rock in the USA.
