But then again everyone has their own opinions . Heres some rocks i picked up at my local gardening store...they're considered or called by the guy Black Volcanic Rock...i never bothered to test ph cause its fishless...for now...



Only down side is the rocks cut me a few times...i bought a big one and smashed it with a huge sludge hammer...then took a hammer and tapped off the sharp edges...obviously missed some ^^! but hey for $25 cents a lb...i spent $20 bucks total compared to spending $100
They look great! Might have to check out a landscaping store.

ThinkTank Get rock samples and put it in a bucket of water for a few days and then test the Ph again to see if there was a change.

le0p My only question with that is, how do you tell the rock composition at the store? I'm looking for something like lime stone, coral rock, seiryu, type stuff. And don't they only sell pavers?

Aheartlessfish you forgot to add $4-5 a lb to that above statement

Try your local gardening/landscaping store...the one near me sells me rocks that i pick out of a pile for 25 cents a lb.

Rocks in SEPA

Hey

I was wondering if anyone knew a good spot to pick up some "wild" rocks that will buffer PH up in a tank. I know I can get them from a few stores but I'm broke, and the only place I know of is That Pet Place in lancaster (which is an hour away from me). I'd rather scavenge if possible.

Any ideas? I live in the north west suburbs of philly area. Think Phoenixville, king of prussia, pottstown, etc...

Thanks,
Leo
