Volcanic Vivarium Rocks

Lightweight, flat-cut, natural stones for live vivariums

Rock For Live Vivariums
On Sale Now!
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.

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 adult professionals & experienced enthusiasts at this time. This product can be sharp & dusty, and cause injury if precautions aren't taken. NEHERP won't be held liable for any negative experiences (injury or otherwise) while working with this product. Always keep the husbandry requirements & physiology of your species in mind while prepping each piece for safety. 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 & thick 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.

* Important: These are considered Accents or "Scrub Stones", to help sand-down the edges of larger pieces. This size may have more than one human-cut side, resulting in a less natural appearance. Still very useful, but not necessarily intended as a standalone decor piece.
