Barrier Reef's Aquarium Blog
We’re excited to announce that we now have the incredible REEFshapes, live rock replacement, in stock. You can read all about this rock on their website, Reefshapes.com.
Some excerpts from their site:
“MADE WITH ARAGONITE and CALCIUM CARBONATE found in real coral rock skeletons which aids in buffering the water. REEFshapes contain no concrete or elements that can be harmful to your valuable collection of sea life.”
“REEFshapes™ substrates and habitats are made by Iron Orca Studios on Whidbey Island in Washington State. Iron Orca Studios specializes in creating habitats for world class zoos, museums, and aquariums throughout the United States. Owner Mark Van Wickler became curious about the special needs of coral life after being involved in creating artificial habitats for aquariums like the National Aquarium in Baltimore and Seike Sealife Habitat in Japan. You can find out more about us and our past work at www.ironorca.com.”
