Black Carved Lava Rock - Medium

Lava rock in general is one of the best rocks to use in a shrimp tank. Lava rock is extremely porous which provides tons of surface area to grow biofilm and beneficial bacteria. Lava rock  will create natural feeding grounds for shrimp and especially baby shrimp. 

Black carved lava rock is ideal for an aquarium because it adds character. The holes add depth to the aquarium and provide natural decoration to include in any aquascape. 

Our medium black carved lava rock is around 2 and a 1/2 - 4 inches per piece. These are great pieces for a shrimp tank. 

Key Benefits

  • Will not increase Ph
  • Provide natural feeding ground for shrimp and other algae eaters
  • Provides hiding places for baby shrimp
  • Beautiful texture for aquascaping

For best results we recommend rinsing rocks before addition to an aquarium. Although all pieces are cleaned, it is natural for rock to create additional dust during shipping.

You will receive one (1) hand selected piece of carved lava rock. Each piece is inspected and packaged with care to help protect the character of each rock.

*Each piece is different. The stones you receive will not be identical to the product pictures although are accurate examples of what you will receive.*

The rock was the right size and was a fun shape. I think it's perfect for my tank.

Setting up and cycling a 10 gallon aquarium and a 55 gallon at the same time The carved lava will be great shrimp hide outs along with the dragon stone and plants! I'm excited! Can't wait to order my first shrimp from Flip Aquatics!

Perfect fit!

The rock fit it perfectly for my planted invertebrate tank! My mystery snails don't seem to care much about it but my amano shrimp are constantly in and out of it and it blends in perfectly with a dark substrate
