Loa Rocks are of volcanic origin and have a structured black surface. They do not harden the water and can therefore also be used in aquariums with sensitive animals and plants.
Thanks to the beautifully structured surface, Loa Rocks also combine in stone structures to form a harmonious overall picture and interlock in countless combinations in a beautiful and lifelike manner. Especially Caribbean volcanic rock landscapes can be imitated stylishly without the need for mortar.
For example, "green reefs" can be designed similar to lava rock. Here, high structures are created, which are then planted with all kinds of epiphytic plants such as ferns of the genera Microsorum or Bolbitis, Pogostemon helferi and also various mosses. The roots of the plants find good hold in the many small holes and pores. If set up correctly, individual stones can be easily replaced later. So you get a "modular" layout. Classic Iwagumi layouts can also be realized and the dark color offers a nice contrast to rich green groundcover.
In combination with roots Loa is also very popular. The individual stones are often planted with moss in order to implement forest inspired layouts, whereby the Loa Rocks partly still show the original flow of the lava they are made of and achieve an even more natural effect.
If there is no additional information provided, we will always put together a balanced collection of different stone sizes.
If you have specific ideas about your layout, just contact us via email (email@example.com) before placing your order and tell us your ideas. Please attach a sketch or photo of an existing layout to your email so we can use it as a template. We will then put together the matching stones for your project and tell you the total weight, so that you can place your order via the webshop.

I was hoping that this type of rock would weigh less but they are still nicely porous so compared to solid rock same size it still weight significantly less
Would say that at least mine one most of it is more dark grey than compared to the picture but I don’t mind. I also need to give them a good clean. Maybe will get darker after a shower.

Es sind aber alles recht große Stücke, sollte man vielleicht wissen.
Die Steine sind fast schwarz und viel schöner als normaler Lava. Die Steine habe ich nur kurz gewässert, minimal Staub. Die Steine haben auch eine super Konsistenz und sind deutlich schwerer als normale Lavasteine. Kurz um,bin absolut begeistert...
Habe noch weitere Steine(25kg) für ein 150 liter Scape bestellt, diesmal waren auch kleinere Steine dabei..
