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. NanoRox ARE NOT live rocks!
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!
Some of our newer designs are more aptly described as frag displays or platforms that do not attach to the glass. In these cases, each NanoRox sits securely on the tank bottom/substrate.
Where do I begin? First, NanorOx are, as the name implies, designed for nano aquariums. From the sizes to the materials and most importantly the donut frag system...there are a lot of things that will help enhance your nano reef.
I'll run through just a few value points:
- constructed of materials that allow us to create more interesting and space saving frag rocks
- donut frag system that allows you to attach different sized frag disks IN the rock rather than just on top
- multipurpose donut frags that also serve as substrate frag holders when not used in the frag rock
-the most realistic frag rack ANYWHERE!
-designed for coral display rather than coral propogation
- the most powerful and environmentally safe magnets available
Depending on size, you will find that coral frag rocks will range in price between $20 and $80 dollars. NanoRox falls right in between these price points but the value and quality put into NanorOx is really unmatched. In time I will be offering different designs and sizes that will vary in price and meet every nano aquarists budget.
NanorOx is a small outfit. We don't keep a huge inventory so all orders are shipped within the week they are ordered. All orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail (flat rate) so once shipped, it should take two days.
Rest assured you will receive an email from me when the order will be shipped and again once it is shipped with the tracking number.
This is an emphatic NO. NanoRox is not live rock nor should it be used to replace live rock. NanoRox are not hollow and do not have the surface area for beneficial bacteria like live rock. Yes, it will host bacteria but so does glass. Remember, NanoRox are frag racks and frag "platforms/displays. If you have a pico reef, such as the minicomplete tank, I suggest some sort of bio-media in the sump or filter.
