Live rock


Recommended Posts

Is it safe to break up live rock?

I an wanting small bits but no one is willing to sell small bits of rock.

Can I buy a bigger bit and break it up into smaller bits without doing it any harm?

You sure can. A hammer and chisel work fine (use safety glasses). The rubble is good for coral fragments or to aquascape by epoxying them to a larger rock.


However, I wouldn't use rubble in a filter. It tends to trap detritus and can cause problems. Live rock in the display should be adequate.

Thanks but I would need bits about 0.5kg / 1lb and would need shipping in England. The bit in my tank is 1.5kg 3.3lb and it takes up a big part of the tank

Think il get a bigger bit and break it up
