What's a Dragon Stone?

Aquarium Dragon Stone stone's gorgeous natural appearance is enhanced by its natural sedimentary rock roots. Dragon Stone is also known as Ohko Stone. Dragon stones originate from clastic sedimentary rocks made of clay minerals and silt that are bonded together by high-pressure waves within an earthy substance referred to as diatomaceous Earth.

Appearance 

Dragon Stone has a distinct look, scaly, that is reminiscent of the skin of a dragon. The exterior is adorned with natural cavities, tiny crevices, and gaps with varying levels. It comes in a myriad of shades and textures, but it usually appears similar to driftwood or petrified wood which makes it an ideal aesthetic option for tankers who wish their tanks to appear natural! When high-pressure waves pound against the stone, they force sediments into soft pieces that create tiny holes and divots in young dragon rock. The particles break down and penetrate down to leave rough marks all over the stone. The waves constantly crash against the rough surfaces of the rock, however, some areas are strong and won't surrender. These areas can be found on sea stacks that look like dragons, where they develop due to the pressure caused by tides bringing sediment on these super hard surfaces. The sun's heat slowly cooks the clay layer and microorganisms that are on the top. It takes some time for the mixture to set but when it does it will give you a stunning dragon stone with a unique color which is unique! The stunning shades of dragon stone stem from the different shades it takes based on the location through the earth's wastes this stone was exposed to. It can be olive green or brown the appearance of the stone may be different depending on where it's from. Some exhibit yellow, red, or orange hues to these, and this is due to the fact that an inert rock absorbs colors from the surrounding environment.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
