For those who wish to purchase light weight media for their aquaponics systems, I’ve got just the thing. Expanded Shale “Rocks in a Box” have been specially sifted for just the right size range to work properly in Aquaponics. Many products will have too many “fines” in the bag to be immediately usable for aquaponics without extra processing or danger of grow beds clogging and not getting enough air/water movement.
“Rocks in a Box” expanded shale is processed and packaged to be the “right size” for Aquaponics and not require all the extra work or re-sifting the media before rinsing and putting in the grow beds.
The packaging is heavy duty enough to ship without worry that your bag will arrive empty. Lets face it a bag of rocks is easy to rip during shipping, hence the “Rocks in a Box.”

Even though they are “light weight” rocks, they are still rocks and it is expensive to ship rocks. To get an idea of the shipping costs you can go ahead and get your own quote.
