Real Reef is a 100% coral reef eco-friendly product made and farmed in the U.S.A. This green product is made from natural materials, with the same building blocks as wild coral skeleton live rock. Real Reef Rock allows the aquarist a natural realistic alternative to wild live rock, without destroying the coral reef habitat. Get all the benefits of wild live rock and more without compromising the future of our hobby and the coral reef habitat.
Real Reef is some of the most beautiful live rock the hobby has ever seen. Whether in a reef or fish only aquarium, Real Reef stays purple dead or alive. The product is pigmented with non-toxic colours to duplicate the most beautiful encrusting coralline algae mother-nature has produced. Real Reef does not harbour nuisance or parasitic algae, inverts and unwanted hitch hikers. Wild live rock inherently is covered and impregnated with undesirable pests and decaying organic matter. In most cases wild live rock is not alive, as it died crossing the Pacific by boat. Real Reef offers the aquarist a clean biologically active rock, which mitigates all the issues of wild live rock, including the process of waiting for the death to subside, AKA curing.
Real Reef Rock is a made of 100% natural marine friendly ingredients. Its components are made of the same building blocks which wild coral and living reef rock are composed of. The ingredients are not taken from the ocean and as a result there is zero environmental impact to the world's coral reefs or marine habitat. Our product is also grown here in the U.S. in closed systems, which also avoids additional environmental impact to the ocean environment via mariculture or ocean farming.
The end result is a 100% natural eco friendly Live Rock alternative for the consumer, made and grown in the U.S.A product that consistently looks better than any of its wild or ocean cultured counterparts.
