Real Reef Aquacultured Bio Active Rock
Real Reef rock is a bioactive aquacultured reef rock designed for your marine or reef aquarium. Each handcrafted rock is unique. Just like in nature, no two rocks are identical.

Real Reef aquarium rocks are an eco-friendly, bioactive alternative to live rock collected from wild coral reefs. Real Reef rock encourages hobbyists to save the world's reefs. The company understands that while each purchase is only a small step toward preserving the world's coral reefs, incrementally they may make a huge impact over time and reflect favorably on the marine aquarium hobby. Real Reef Aquacultured Bioactive Rock is available now for $199.99 for 25 lbs. and $419.99 for 60lbs. There are additional shipping surcharges due to the heaviness of shipments.

Mr. Aqua 25 Gallon Frameless Low-Iron Glass Aquarium (18" x 18" x 18")
Mr. Aqua aquariums are produced using high clarity glass with thicknesses ranging between 5mm to 10mm depending on the size. By eliminating the plastic frame that surrounds typical aquarium systems, the Mr. Aqua aquarium provides a clean and clear view of your aquatic life. Normally the plastic frame is used to support and keep the glass from bending under pressure in standard quality aquariums. Mr. Aqua utilizes a thicker glass for increased rigidity with a specially formulated silicone manufactured in Germany that bonds the glass together with extreme strength while being safe for your fish and aquatic life. Each glass aquarium is meticulously assembled with straight and true beveled cut glass and a fine application of high strength silicone, making the Mr Aqua aquarium not only watertight and rigid but aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. Available now for only $159.99 (spend $175 and your order ships for free).
