Aquarium stones - Natural decoration for your aquarium

Aquarium rocks are an essential part of creating natural and attractive aquarium landscapes. They not only offer aesthetic benefits, but also help to create hiding places and structure the aquarium. At Rendo-Shrimp you will find a large selection of high-quality stones that are perfect for your aquarium.

Types of aquarium stones

Our selection of aquarium rocks includes various types that are characterized by their natural shapes and colors. Here are some of the stones we have in our range:

Seiryu stones - These blue-grey stones are particularly popular in the aquascaping scene. They are characterized by their distinctive shapes and fine textures and are ideal for creating dramatic landscapes.

Dragonstones (Ohko stones) - These stones have a unique, cracked surface and a reddish-brown color. They are ideal for creating caves and hiding places for fish and shrimp.

Slate - Slate stones are flat and are ideal for stacking or as a base for moss and plants. They are versatile and can be used both as decoration and as a structural element.

River stones - These stones are smooth and rounded, ideal for a natural, soft look in the aquarium. They are perfect for aquariums with fish that like to dig or hide.

Advantages of aquarium stones

Aquarium stones offer numerous benefits for your aquarium. They contribute to the structure and design of the tank and create a natural environment for your aquarium inhabitants. Stones provide hiding places for fish and invertebrates, reducing stress and promoting natural behavior.

Stones can also serve as a substrate for plants that grow on hard surfaces, such as anubias, java ferns and mosses. This makes planting the aquarium easier and creates interesting and aesthetic landscapes.

Another advantage of stones in the aquarium is their ability to influence the water chemistry. Some stones, such as limestone, can increase the pH value and water hardness, which can be beneficial for certain fish species and plants.

Tips for selecting and placing aquarium stones

When choosing the right stones for your aquarium, you should consider the needs of your aquarium inhabitants and the specific conditions of your tank. Make sure you select stones that do not release harmful substances and do not have a negative impact on the water.

The placement of the stones in the aquarium is also important. Larger stones should be placed in the background or in the middle of the tank to create a natural depth effect. Smaller stones can be arranged in the foreground or on the sides of the aquarium to complete the landscape.

Use silicone or special aquarium glue to securely bond stones together and create stable structures. Make sure that the stones are firmly anchored in the substrate to prevent them from tipping over.

Care and maintenance of aquarium stones

The care of aquarium stones is relatively simple. Clean the stones regularly to remove algae growth and deposits. To do this, use a soft brush and lukewarm water. Avoid using chemical cleaning agents that could damage the water and the inhabitants of the aquarium.

Check the stones regularly for cracks or damage. Remove or replace damaged stones to ensure the safety of your aquarium inhabitants.
