REEF BALL MODELS!
Reef Ball Models are 7 inches wide, 5 inches tall and weigh 5 to 6 pounds.
We started out making models of Reef Balls for Research & Development and as sales demonstration models. To our surprise, we took many orders for other uses. After two years of refinement, we have figured out a way to make them in large quantities even though every one is made by hand.
It turns out that models make great saltwater aquarium pieces. And since they have such a large amount of surface area, they can actually improve a tank's chemistry by providing a place for nitrifying bacteria which are needed to "cycle" a tank.
Whatever your needs may be, remember that Reef Balls are infinitely interesting to look at and talk about. The following may give you some very creative ways to "deploy" your model Reef Ball:
Research objects for Science Fair/Projects and School Reports
Structure for SALTWATER aquariums
Mangrove "planters" for seedlings (holds them in place until rooted)
Business card holder
Candle holder (great for single folks)
Remote control holder
Icebreaker for parties Doorstop
Gift for an ecologically minded person
Our models are made from the same pH neutralized concrete mix as the real Reef Balls. That's why they are so strong and won't harm your saltwater aquarium life.
DO NOT USE THESE MODELS IN FRESHWATER
AQUARIUMS AS THE pH IS BALANCED FOR
(You should still pre-soak the units in a bucket of water for at least a week before placing in your tank to remove the dust from shipping and any residual calcium hydroxide).
HOW TO ORDER:
Unfortunately, we are not e-commerce enabled. Therefore we still take orders the old fashioned way.
If you want to order your own model, just send us a check for $20 (to the address below) and a return US address for us to UPS the model to you. (No P.O. Boxes, please). If you are outside the US, you'll have to pay shipping which varies from country to country so call or e-mail us first.
You can now have a miniature Reef Ball in your home!
