THE MOST EXQUISITE SELECTION OF NATURAL MATERIALS

NANO BOULDERS

Please, follow our recommendations to enjoy our boulders: 

  • Most of our Nano Boulders come completely clean. Even though, we recommend rinsing boulders with water before use to remove any remaining dust.

  • You can easily test if a boulder is inert or if it will change slightly the pH and hardness. Simply place few drops of vinegar on the rock. If the vinegar (a base substance) fizzes or foams, it indicates that the gravel contains some calcium.

  • Boulders that contain calcium may alter the pH and kH. This can be especially pronounced if you have acidic water or CO2 addition. You can easily control it by regular water changes with osmotic or soft water. You can also use a water softener.

WHITE ADDER

These pale-yellow to cream coloured stones are a great addition to the pallets of aquascapers and biotopers alike; smooth, slightly textured surfaces will reflect light and combine with plants to create a soft ambience or can be combined with other gravels and stones to form the bed of a flowing stream. The Gravel form comes in S, M and L sizes and we also offer Nano Boulder and Boulder sized stones, many displaying beautiful striations across their surface.

McDonald Lake

McDONALD LAKE

Impressively colourful Nano Boulders that will create a Monet like impression. The McDonald Lake Nano Boulder range in colour from dark red to maroon, and from green to blue. 

 

Lake McDonald is Glacier National Park's biggest lake in Montana, USA. One of the most striking features of this lake is the presence of a variety of coloured rocks and pebbles just below the water surface and on the shores. 

The coloured stones of lake McDonald are entirely the credit of the planet. The colour of the pebbles is due to the iron content in sedimentary pebble rocks and the degree of its oxidation. So, for example, where iron was in close contact with air, red colours prevail there. But green colours are typical for stones formed at great depths, where oxygen is very limited.

Initially, rocks were formed for millions of years and, depending on conditions, acquired those very amazing colours. Subsequently, these lake rocks were ground into small coloured pebbles by giant ice blocks during the Ice Age. Streams of meltwater brought coloured stones into the valley, which was filled with glacial runoffs.

INFERNO

Our Inferno Nano boulders will bring a subtle colour to any display with their soft red-orange hues. These texture stones could be used to great effect in a biotope, especially for river displays or can be employed in a planted aquascape, where they will provide contrast to green plants and interest with their variegated patterns.

DRUID

wio_nanoboulders_druid_png.png

A smaller version of our regular Druid Boulders, these stones, with their heavily textured surfaces and dark colouration could be used to great effect when combined with bright green plants such as Eleocharis. You might want to use them in a biotope, an aquascape or an emersed display! We think they wouldn’t look out of a place in a Studio Gibli animation, like dark boulders in a grassy meadow.
