A relative belonging to the Lava Rock family, Icelandic Lava Stone features much more detail, character, and textures. Slightly denser than regular Lava Stone, the added textures make these aquarium ready rocks perfect for creating scenic mountain aquascapes. Given its porous surface, Anubias, Bucephalandra, Ferns, and moss species are able to quickly attach themselves providing a natural looking aquascape. We recommend attaching Anubias or Bucephalandra in holes and crevices for beautiful pops of color. Alternatively, an Iwagumi style rock only aquascape can be done as well using some aquatic moss on the stone and pairing it with a simple foreground such as Micranthemum Monte Carlo or Eleocharis Parvulus for an ethereal serene layout. In addition, due to its porous nature, this aquarium rock is lighter than most and as a result, the buyer will receive more in quantity.
Shown below is approximately 20lbs of Icelandic Lava Stone in a shallow 10 gallon planted aquarium tank:
Pieces range from 3 - 12 inches. If you would like a specific size, please add a note upon checkout and we will try to accommodate your request to the best of our ability.
How many pounds do I need?
We advise 2 x Tank volume in gallons = Total amount of pounds required
