Tonga Kaelini Live RockTonga Kaelini Live Rock

Tonga Kaelini live rock is beautiful rock. It is harvested right around the coral reefs themselves. Therefore Tonga Kaelini is made from the corals that were broken in storms, that have fallen and were encrusted with coraline algae over time. Stunningly beautiful! Tonga Kaelini live rock consists of ancient encrusted coral heads. The advantages of using Tonga Kaelini Live Rock is the incredible diversity of coloration, and unique shapes. It is also lighter than Fiji Rock so you need to purchase less rock. For Tonga Kaelini Aquarium Live Rock we recommend 1-1/2 pounds per gallon where Fiji live rock would require 2 pounds per gallon to look the same. For aquascaping, it is acceptable to alter the shapes and sizes of the rock with a hammer and chisel. This will not damage the integrity of the rock, nor it's inhabitants. Please, just make sure you wear safety glasses. Tonga Kaelini live rock will color up with more unique colors than Fiji rock. You will see purple, pink, red, yellow, and green coralline algae.

When rocking your reef tank, it is acceptable to combine a few different islands rock. You may also alter the sizes and shape of your live rock with a hammer and chisel. This will not damage the integrity of the rock, nor it's inhabitants. Please be careful to wear eye protection if you are chiseling live rock.

You pay only for the weight of the live rock, not the weight of the packaging. Unlike some other online dealers, Aquarium Creations Online does not count the box and all packaging materials as part of the live rock weight ordered. All orders are handpicked , then hand packaged, first wrapped in plastic and paper for cushioning, then we pack all orders in a styrofoam container and styro foamies for extra cushioning.

Live Rock is easy to maintain in either a reef or fish only aquarium, and makes an excellent addition for both the beginner or experienced aquarist. Tonga Kaelini requires moderate lighting and moderate water movement, along with the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, and trace elements.

Important: Adding Live Rock to a tank who already has fish or coral in it ? Although our live rock has been treated ,cleaned, and pre-cured, it is imperative to do a final cure of any live rock
from any supplier, upon receipt, before it is placed in the display aquarium that contains fish, coral, or inverts.

Due to variations in live rock, please expect differences in size and shape. Newly shipped live rock will not contain much color. As long as your tank parameters are kept in good check coralline colors will become evident on the live rock over time but it doesn't happen overnight. Please be patient. If you wish immediate purple colored rock we suggest you purchase a artificial live rock we sell called "RealReef Rock". RealReef Rock comes with lifelike purple coloration applied to the surface of the rock. Finally from going through shipping, a very small amount of rubble rock may be present upon receipt of the box. This is normal and is a result of transportation to your door. The small amount of rubble can help to seed your new aquariums, or can be added to the refugium to establish hiding places for copapods and other micro-fauna.
