Curator's Note
We recommend that every marine aquarium utilize Live Rock for either filtration or decoration. Most fish-only aquariums today are really FOWLR (fish only with live rock) tanks. The benefits to all fish and invertebrates is well documented and some sensitive fish like dwarf angels have a very hard time surviving in captivity without Live Rock present in the aquarium.
Description
Tonga Fapiena live rock is made up of ancient table corals which gives this rock its characteristic triangular shape. Add this rock to create flat surfaces to place coral on or use it to create intricate caves for fish to hide.

Live rock is the basis for most aquaria today. It has for years been associated with reef tanks but we know now that every marine aquarium will benefit from the addition of live rock. Most live rock is sold in two basic categories: base live rock and display quality live rock. Tonga live rock is back after years and is considered to be the PREMIER display live rock on the market.

The display rock of choice has changed over the years. Tonga is the traditional go-to place for the best quality live rock available in the Pacific. It is created from ancient coral skeletons which gives it extreme porosity as well as keep the actual weight low. You could, for example, buy a 45 pound box of Tonga live rock and it would take up the same volume in your tank as 80 pounds of much more dense Fiji live rock. Tonga live rock is also some of the freshest rock available due to the short travel time and limited cargo space available. It never sits around and collects flies.

Shipping

So how does this rock get to you?

Once we receive your order, you will be contacted to arrange for shipping. There are two options available. We ship small orders of one or two boxes via FedEx. By default, we will price out FedEx Express Saver which is a three day service.

FREE EXPRESS SAVER SHIPPING! For a limited time only so order soon!

Because of the packing techniques in Tonga as well as our own techniques, the Live Rock does exceptionally well with this travel time and the cost savings in freight is worth it in many people’s minds. We also offer 2nd Day and Standard Overnight from FedEx.

The second option is to use an air freight service. For orders over two boxes this is really the least expensive way to go. We contract with most airlines and can find the cheapest and best flight to your local airport. This process is usually faster than FedEx as well. The drawback is that you will have to drive to the airport to pick the rock up on the day it arrives. You would then pay the airline directly for the freight. The charge varies based on the actual air line but typically runs between $0.35 and $0.85 per pound with a 100 pound minimum.

You will have the choice of which method to use once you check out. You will not be charged anything for shipping at the completion of your order. A representative will call you to inform you of what the charges are and, if you have chosen to use a FedEx service, those charges will be added to your invoice. We have one of the best discounts in the industry from FedEx, and we will always charge you the exact shipping amount, nothing more.

Below is a table of shipping charges for a single 45 pound box of Tonga live rock to various cities across the US. This will give you a basic idea of what to expect.
