Is this Stone Safe?
I'm putting together my first big tank. It's a 120 gallons and will have both driftwood and stone. A large piece of driftwood will be on the left as you face the tank and three stones on the right. I hope to have a channel of decorative sand running between the two elements of hard scape.
I found some really nice stone at the local landscape supply company. It's called Three River Rock. The quarry's web site describes it as follows:
"This argillite stone was formed in the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho. The swirl pattern and tiger stripes of golds, tans, beiges, white & plums are unlike any other stone."
Any Geologists in the group? Does argillite pose any heavy metal leaching risks?"
