Not to worry...just advise me of special considerations,,,in the comment box..on the order form....will fix you up!

Amazing substrate

It is the real thing....

I have been doing this since 1975...and I have been all over the world in the last 20 years....looking for good sources of rock that will work.

To have a good host the rock must be coral rock....IE...old reef.....as the organisms will not fall out and colonize just any substrate, not effectively that is...

I have tried everything on the planet that I could get my hands on and transport for it's origin....to the aquaculture site. From Trinidad...Mexico...the islands.. Italy...Africa...and more..

This substrate it the most amazing I have ever obtained....it is the best I have found or seen....in the world....as it is not only aesthetic, but effective on allowing a proper host for marine life to adhere, and grow on. It developed coralines on it in less that three weeks in the wild.....and after six months in the water...it has shown incredible growth.

But as anything else...once popular...it becomes harder to obtain...and the permitting process for export is deepening....

I was thinking about getting the package for a 65 gal tank What would the total price be 2 have that shipped to area code 46801? Do you make 2 shipments when someone buys the package? one for the rock/ sand and one for the cuc? If so how does the shipping costs work with that?

Cool

i read in one of your earlier post that you have rubble sized pieces of dry rock. i was wondering that since i am local if it would be feasible to just come hand pick a couple pounds of this rubble sized rock as well as some larger pieces?

I was wondering if I got the 65gal package could I have a truck driver friend of mine pick it up at your shop or would it be bad for the rock/sand/cuc 2 ride in the truck? He said that he would be able 2 fit it in the cab of his truck if the boxes are small enough to get through the truck door. LMK because it would be cool 2 get out of the shipping charges

Thanks
Ron
