The reasons why we make our own rock and leave the wild rock alone in the ocean are important. For those of you who have not yet uncovered all of our online articles, I will list some for you. The wild rock in our oceans are the foundation of our natural reefs. They are homes and hiding places to many of the fish and the platform for all of our corals to attach and grow on. As our wild reefs are struggling for their very lives we need to do all we can to be the voice for these animals and the ambassadors for this precious life we so cherish.
When one takes the time to study where live rock comes from and how it travels from ocean to the hobbyist one begins to understand why so many people have trouble with their home reef tanks starting with day one. Live rock can come from deeper down in the ocean, and it sits in boxes with no light and no water for who knows how long. The hobbyist is anxiously saving their hard earned dollars, investing in high powered lights only to place this live rock in their tanks to see animals, coralline, sponges and all the other hitchhikers die one by one. They wonder why. Along with the live rock comes many hair pulling problems, unwanted algae, aiptasia, crabs and much more.
