Hole Stone has distinctive holes of any size, with warm colors and gritty textures, giving a distinctive appearance. The holes are perfect to provide shelter to animals and ideal for epiphytic plants. Hole Stone adds a natural and artistic touch to any aquarium or vivarium.



Hole stone is a fascinating and unique rock. It gets its name from the numerous holes and cavities that are present throughout the rock, creating a unique and naturalistic appearance.

The rock is a type of limestone that forms through a process of precipitation from groundwater that contains dissolved minerals. Over time, the minerals form into layers that compress and harden to create a solid rock. The holes and cavities in the rock are formed when water erodes away the softer parts of the rock, leaving behind a unique pattern of holes and crevices.

The Hole stone is highly porous, providing an ideal surface area for beneficial bacteria to colonize and thrive, making it a popular choice for those who want a healthy and bioactive aquarium or terrarium. The beneficial bacteria help to break down harmful chemicals and waste in the water, creating a cleaner and healthier environment for aquatic life. 

Hole Stone is an alkaline rock that may raise the pH and hardness of the water in your aquarium or terrarium. It is important to regularly monitor and adjust the water parameters to ensure that they remain within the ideal range for your specific species. For those looking to create a biotope that requires alkaline water conditions, Hole Stone is an excellent choice that can help replicate the natural habitat of many fish and reptile species.
