LifeRock Shelf is the perfect way to create a stable base for your rock structures. You can stack pieces up to design caves, or even build up backwalls with its unique flat side, and the flatter surface is perfect for mounting many encrusting corals. We’ve found that a mixture of Shelf rock and other types of LifeRock such as the Arches or Shapes is a great way to create interesting, beautiful aquascapes that instantly look established and natural.
Every LifeRock from CaribSea has an artificial coating and texture that mimics natural coralline algae after being in the ocean for years. LifeRock is infused with spored bacteria to aid in biological performance, along with millions of micro and macro passage ways CaribSea’s Arches Dry Rock is perfect for the environmentally friendly aquarist.

CaribSea LifeRock is made of an aragonitic base rock, instead of the typical cement used by many other artificial rock creators. Every rock contains a network of micro and macro pores that intertwine within the rocks internal structure creating the perfect environment for natural nitrifying bacteria. LifeRock is manmade and does not affect our natural resources, making it the perfect option for all marine fish, invertebrates, and corals.
Note: Depending on the animals that you have in your aquarium, they may pick at the coating on the rocks which will not harm them at all, and over time live coralline algae will cover any spots on the rocks that may have had the coating picked off.

How much rock do I need?
Knowing exactly how much Dry Live Rock you will need can be one of the hardest questions to answer since every tank and rock will be slightly different. A general guideline for dry Live Rock, we suggest 1 pound of rock per gallon of display tank volume and may vary depending on your overall goal for the aquascape. We always recommend purchasing a little extra dry rock to ensure that you will have enough to complete the aquascape you are looking for, any extra rock can always be broken up and placed in your refugium, overflows, and sump for added filtration.
