Volcanic Vivarium Rocks

Lightweight, flat-cut, natural stones for live vivariums

Rock For Live Vivariums
NEHERP Staff Description:
Our volcanic rocks are 100% all-natural, porous, and extremely lightweight in comparison to most natural rocks. These have an incredible number of uses in a live vivarium, and have been being tested by NEHERP staff since 2015. One side of each rock is cut flat to increase it's usefulness, and to help minimize the risks associated with one rolling or tipping over. (The flat part of each rock is facing down in the photo above) Most pieces of volcanic rock can be attached to a custom background using our recommended silicone adhesive to create real rock ledges within an enclosure. Each piece is porous, and actually holds a fair amount of water after misting. This makes volcanic rock a perfect natural solution for growing plants on a rock surface, especially when paired with a Misting System. The texture of volcanic rock is sharp at first, but rubbing two pieces together helps to smooth things out nicely.
Prices range from $6.99 to to $16.99

Ultra-Important Product Disclaimer:
Volcanic Rock isn't "ready to use" straight out of the box, and we strongly recommend smoothing each piece down before use. This product isn't especially user-friendly and we only recommended it to professionals & experienced enthusiasts at this time. When staff members build using this type of rock at NEHERP, they follow this 3-step procedure to help minimize the sharpness of each piece:
1) Wear eye protection & work gloves for safety, and moisten the rocks before proceeding.
2) Rub the rocks together, working down every sharp point which will be exposed. (3-7 mins)
3) Re-rinse the smoothed-down piece and carefully check to ensure appropriate smoothness.
Always keep the husbandry requirements & physiology of your species in mind while prepping each piece for safety.

Please don't purchase unless you are comfortable making experienced decisions about what is appropriate for the animal species you are working with, and don't mind getting your hands dirty (using gloves & eye protection) while working with this moderately difficult product.

Rocks are measured at their longest point. Widths & depths are usually 45-85% the length. This is a natural product and every size will vary.
Because Volcanic Rocks are sharp at first, we don't recommend it to anyone who isn't comfortable using a product with a higher level of difficulty. We really, really love animals and would hate to see this product used in a way which wouldn't be in an animal's best interest, and we'd hate to disappoint a client with a surprisingly difficult product. (Assuming the disclaimer wasn't read)
On the bright side, we've got a few easier to use alternatives which we'd recommend in any situation! For artificial rocks, you might want to check out Magnaturals Ledges. They look nice & perform well for the price. They are meant to be modular (easy to remove), but can also be built into a custom background if desired. Zoo Med's Mushroom Ledges are another "ledge" style product which mimic the look of a mushroom, rather than a rock. There are a bunch of different wood decor options which can be used to create ledges, with Cork being the best selling & easiest to work with. In short, you've got options! :-)
