Ohko Stone, also known as Dragon Stone, is a popular aquascaping rock. The stone carries a unique scale like texture which makes any aquarium stand out and it cannot be duplicated with artificial decorations. Ohko stones are commonly utilized in iwagumi style layouts. The unique characteristics of each crevice and edge in every stone is what separates Ohko “Dragon” Stones from the rest. The clay-like composition of this type of stone makes it brittle compared to other rocks, allowing larger rocks to easily be broken down into smaller pieces.
The stone scales are usually filled with dirt/clay when is is collected and needs a very thorough cleaning with water.
Here is a closeup. It is filled with dirt.
At Nature Aquascapes we make sure to thoroughly clean and send you the best quality stone so you can get to the most important part which is scaping your new aquarium as soon as you get the stone.
