Darwin Black Lava stone is a jet-black lava stone with high texture and crevices, perfect for creating contrast with plants in aquariums.

  • Description

    Darwin Black Lava stone is a unique and visually striking volcanic rock that is ideal for use in aquariums and terrariums. This porous stone is rich in minerals and has a rugged texture that makes it perfect for creating natural and aesthetically pleasing aquatic and terrestrial landscapes.


    The rock's dark coloration, created by a combination of black and dark grey tones, provides an intriguing contrast with brighter colors of aquatic plants, mosses, and the fauna within the habitat. The porous surface of the Darwin Black Lava stone is perfect for beneficial bacteria and microorganisms to grow and thrive. This makes it an excellent option for establishing a bioactive environment in aquariums, terrariums, and vivariums, which are essential for maintaining healthy ecosystems.


    The rough texture of the Darwin Black Lava stone also provides the ideal surface for epiphytic plants such as Anubias and mosses like Java moss, and it also creates a natural-looking landscape that mimics the natural environments of many aquatic and terrestrial organisms. Additionally, its porous nature allows it to absorb and release water quickly, making it an excellent choice for planted tanks, humid habitats, and those that require high moisture levels.


    This inert stone does not harden water, making it ideal for sensitive aquatic animals and plants. 

  • Key Points

  • Characteristics

  • Usage

  • It can be used in both aquatic and terrarium environments.
  • Rinse rocks and stones with water before use. Use a brush to clean it before introducing the stones in the aquarium.
  • Avoid placing rocks directly on the glass as they can be very heavy and sharp. Instead, place substrate or our LandForms before placing the hardscape to help fix the exact stone position with more freedom.
  • Always secure the stones, especially when placing one rock on top of another, you can do so with our ScapeBound, as the top rock may move or fall during regular maintenance, harming your dwellers or even breaking the aquarium.
  • Position stones a few centimeters/inches away from aquarium glass walls to facilitate maintenance.
  • Safe for fish, shrimps, and other aquatic animals
