Decorative Materials

• Coral rock, which is fossilized coral reef, is quarried by the ton in, for example, the Florida Keys. Chunks up to about the size of a basketball can be used to simulate a reef when live rock is not used.

• Plastic corals and other reef denizens that look remarkably like the real thing have been successfully created by aquarium manufacturers. By all means use them if you wish, alone or in combination with natural materials. Plastic coral reproductions may be the best choice if you do not want to invest in the additional lighting and care that living corals require.
