Description
WIO Darwin Black Lava Stone is a unique and visually striking volcanic rock ideal for aquariums and terrariums. This porous stone is rich in minerals and has a rugged texture that makes it perfect for creating natural and aesthetically pleasing aquatic and terrestrial landscapes.

The rock's dark colouration, created by combining black and dark grey tones, contrasts with the brighter colours of aquatic plants, mosses, and the fauna within the habitat. The porous surface of the Darwin Black Lava stone is perfect for beneficial bacteria and microorganisms to grow and thrive. This makes it an excellent option for establishing a bioactive environment in aquariums, terrariums, and vivariums, essential for maintaining healthy ecosystems.

The rough texture of the Darwin Black Lava stone also provides the ideal surface for epiphytic plants such as Anubias and mosses like Java moss, and it also creates a natural-looking landscape that mimics the natural environments of many aquatic and terrestrial organisms. Additionally, its porous nature allows it to absorb and release water quickly, making it an excellent choice for planted tanks, humid habitats, and those that require high moisture levels.

This inert stone does not harden water, making it ideal for sensitive aquatic animals and plants.

Usage

- It can be used in both aquatic and terrarium environments.
- Rinse rocks and stones with water before use. Use a brush to clean it before introducing the rocks into the aquarium.
- Avoid placing rocks directly on the glass, as they can be very heavy and sharp. Instead, place the substrate before placing the hardscape to help fix the exact stone position with more freedom.
- Always secure the stones, especially when placing one rock on another. You can do so with Scape Adhesives.
- Position stones a few centimetres away from aquarium glass walls to facilitate maintenance.
- Control any alterations in pH and kH by regular water changes with osmotic or soft water or by using a water conditioner if necessary.
