Black Lava Rock

Black Lava Rock is a porous aquascaping stone that is widely used for planted as well as African Cichlid tanks.  This lightweight stone can range from a dark black to a reddish brown coloration.  The porosity makes it suitable for use as aquarium filtration as the tiny holes provide surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize.

Great company and great customer service!

I ordered the black and red lava rocks, both are great!

Good but...

My lava rocks are great but they have some unusual white spots and a lot of holes, I didn’t even know there were any until I got them since in the picture they didn’t have any spots nor holes

Fantastic selection

I ordered the 20lb box (which I did not need for my measly 10g, but I was worried if I ordered smaller, I wouldn't get any nice larger pieces). This was very much not the case -- I got a nice variety of rock in both texture and size. I got ~10 big rocks.

Not bad!

Some parts did have unnatural carving due to breakage. Also, two rocks out of my 18lb+2lb pack for 20G have white spots, making them look less natural (bird-pooped in some other perspective, making it too natural haha). But the quality and the packaging were great so as the service and the price. For 20Gallon, 18lb was enough because of light-weight nature of this rock.

Amazing service!

This was my first time ordering plants and I can honestly say,I'm impressed!!! The plants looked amazing! The Black Lava rock was PERFECT!!!! Just great! I am a long time lover of this company now! Just wish they could get TwinStar LEDS in quicker I want a 450e. lol Love the BucePlant Team!!!!
