Well, let me first tell you what it is not. NanorOx is NOT a large company with hundreds or even tens of employees. In fact, NanorOx is the creative expression of a solo nano aquarist...me - Duane Clark. I believe nano aquascaping can be done as beautifully as what can be accomplished in larger aquaria. In fact, because of innovative scaping options like NanorOx, it may even be better. By utilizing the entire aquarium space (including the glass and back walls) tiny, intimate aquatic ecosystems can be created that are simply not possible in larger tanks. NanorOx was created for this sole purpose...to expand the nano aquarist's aquascaping options for less money than could be done in larger aquariums.
NanorOx are innovative, hand made resin coral frag rocks. First, lets talk about construction. Each NanorOx uses two powerful Neodymium magnets to attach to the aquarium walls. One magnet is inset within the resin while the outside magnet is plastic coated so it can be placed in the back chamber of an All In One (AIO) aquarium. The magnets are so strong you can use your NanorOx in aquariums with glass as thick as 1/2 an inch! NanorOx are made of all aquarium safe materials by Smooth-On. They are first cast in reef safe resin and are then expertly painted in water based acrylics and finally sealed in a tough plastic encapsulant to provide extra strength and durability.
You may notice that NanorOx do not hold as many frags as some other frag rocks. In fact, some other frag rocks look like blocks of swiss cheese they have so many holes in them. There is a reason for this. NanorOx frag rocks ARE NOT meant for coral propogation and sale. Let's face it, if the corals are allowed to grow too long you have to move them anyway. NanorOx frag rocks are specifically designed to display your corals...giving them room to grow and to highlight their beauty in one spot...for a long time.
Finally, and here is the really cool part, NanorOx uses a patent pending frag holder I call a "donut frag". Rather than place ugly holes all over the rock that detract from the rock's appearance, donut frags allow you to simply place the frag disk inset into the rock so it seamlessly blends into the rock and most importantly, securely holds your coral in place without the need for any glue. The donut part, which by the way is reflected in our logo, allows you to adjust the frag holder to accept .75 in to a 1.5 inch frag disks. If you have a frag disk between those sized, just use the 1.5 inch
YouTube celebrity and reef tank enthusiast, The Inappropriate Reefer, does a great job of summing up NanoRox. Take a look!
