Be very careful with this. If you heat rocks that may have air pockets or trapped water, you may crack / explode them, and end up with shrapnel.

Chaeto can grow amazingly fast, and will harbor tons of amphipods as well. I think half of the chaeto in upstate NY can trace its lineage back to my RDP sump. :biggrin:
