A relative belonging to the Lava Rock family, Icelandic Lava Stone features similar characteristics paired with added detail, ,character and texture. Just as porous, but slightly denser than regular Lava Stone, Icelandic Lava Stone offers added texture that makes this aquascaping stone perfect for recreating scenic mountain aquascapes. Its porous surface is favorable for attaching aquarium moss and epiphytic aquarium plants such as Anubias, Bucephalandra and ferns and a rougher texture makes this stone suitable for stacking. Icelandic Lava Stone is versatile and we can see it being used for popular aquascaping styles from Iwagumi to Pond-style and more.
Shown below is approximately 20lbs of Icelandic Lava Stone in a shallow 10 gallon planted aquarium tank:
How many pounds do I need?
We advise 2 x Tank volume in gallons = Total amount of pounds required
TIP: Take advantage of Icelandic Lava Stone's porous texture! It provides a perfect surface for delicate aquarium mosses to grow on. We like Fissidens Fontanus!
