Elephant Skin Stone, also known as Seegebirge Stone, is a popular aquascaping material that is easily recognized for its unique texture and light color tone. The texture found on Elephant Skin Stone is the caused by years of weathering and natural erosion, resulting in a leathered, wrinkled appearance. Featuring occasional depressions and concave areas, Elephant Skin Stone retains a very natural appearance that works well with bright green aquarium plants. Unlike Seiryu Stone and most aquarium stones, Elephant Skin Stone does not have jagged or sharp edges and is instead a much more rounded rock, producing a softer look while being great for aquarium livestock with fragile fins such as the Betta Splendens.
How many pounds do I need?

TIP: Elephant Skin Stone features rounded edges making it great for fragile-finned livestock!
