Manten Stone is a premium aquascaping stone that features rugged edges, unique textures and interesting color tones. Found in high elevation mountain ranges of Asia, Manten Stone earns its key characteristics due to many years of erosion and fusing from pressure found in its natural environment. This feature makes the stone extremely sought after along with its ability to recreate extreme realism in planted aquariums. Great for Iwagumi layouts or creative mountainscapes, Manten Stone remains a favorite amongst aquascaping hobbyists.
Manten will naturally vary in size and color.
- Manten stone is inert and won't change water parameters.
- Great for mountainous aquascapes or Iwagumi layouts!
We recommend 2 pounds of stone for every gallon of water your tank holds. A 5 gallon tank would need 10 pounds, 10 gallon requires 20 pounds etc. Of course this is just a recommendation, the amount of stone needed will depend on your plans. It's always nice to have a bit extra for more layout options too!
How we choose stone
All stone in various weights is pre-selected and packed. Most stones range from 6 cm - 25 cm and are chosen for what we think will work well together based on Nature Aquarium principals. Please refer to the pictures for stone size reference. For example if you would like 20 lbs of mostly smaller stones choose 5 lbs x 4 boxes or 10 lbs x 2 boxes. For single larger stones please check out our WYSIWYG section.
