  • Description

    Hole stone is a fascinating and unique rock. It gets its name from the numerous holes and cavities that are present throughout the rock, creating a unique and naturalistic appearance.

    The rock is a type of limestone that forms through a process of precipitation from groundwater that contains dissolved minerals. Over time, the minerals form into layers that compress and harden to create a solid rock. The holes and cavities in the rock are formed when water erodes away the softer parts of the rock, leaving behind a unique pattern of holes and crevices.

    The Hole stone is highly porous, providing an ideal surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize and thrive, making it a popular choice for those who want a healthy and bioactive aquarium or terrarium. The beneficial bacteria help to break down harmful chemicals and waste in the water, creating a cleaner and healthier environment for aquatic life.

    Hole Stone is an alkaline rock that may raise the pH and hardness of the water in your aquarium or terrarium. It is important to regularly monitor and adjust the water parameters to ensure that they remain within the ideal range for your specific species. For those looking to create a biotope that requires alkaline water conditions, Hole Stone is an excellent choice that can help replicate the natural habitat of many fish and reptile species.

  • 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.
  • Control any alterations in pH and kH by regular water changes with osmotic or soft water, or by using a water softener if necessary.
  • Safe for fish, shrimps, and other aquatic animals
