New Products: Marco Rocks arriving 11/20


Already a hit on the east coast, Marco Rocks made a splash at Reef-A-Palooza this year and will soon be making their way to the west so we can ship them to reefers around the globe.

We'll begin by selling 2 box sizes: a 35-pound box of rocks for $99.99 + shipping and a 50-pound box for $129.99 + shipping.


Marco Rocks are natural calcium carbonate and quarried near Key Largo, Florida. The company promises to be a reliable base rock source for marine and reef aquaria.


Each box is hand packed by a reef enthusiast to ensure you get a nice variety for your own tank. These reef safe rocks arrive to you pre-cycled to help speed the setup of new aquariums. They are porous, lightweight and have a large surface area.

In an average 50-pound box you'll get 3 to 4 football-sized rocks and an assortment of smaller pieces to round out the box for weight. Marco Rocks promises "no rubble" and, in fact, adds an extra 1-2 pounds for any rubble that may result through the shipping process.

You can look for these babies on our website November 20. To view pics of what you can expect,
