I have had many people ask us over the years(mostly local) if we could source them some REAL live rock. With Fiji, and Tonga shut down, I haven't seen real live rock in years!
All that has changed! We finally managed to get a few boxes in(as a trial) from our Aussie suppliers. This rock is AWESOME! If you're looking for some unique, REAL live rock - look no further!

This all came in via Air Freight - which is the majority of the cost of the rock at the retail level.
It comes in covered with the wet newspaper and stinks, but the quality on this stuff far exceeds anything I remember from Fiji. The rock isn't as porous either, so the likelihood of pests seems to be much less.

I’ve not been able to source any kind of real rock in years and this stuff is awesome. Good coralline coverage, no real evidence of macro algae (showing it came from a more lagoon environment), and not a lot of sediment or die off.

I love the artificial rock but you can’t beat the biodiversity you introduce with the real stuff IMHO
