I have done a search and have seen it in stores, so i have come to the conclusion that flagstone is safe to use in tanks. however, i have (2) main questions:

1.) what does it do to the water parameters? I would assume it would raise the kH?

2.) does anyone have any good pictures of a tank that uses flagstone? I will be using it in a planted cichlid tank and plan on making a bunch of nice holes and caves...

Later,
Andy

That's good enough for me. I never thought of making an entire wall out of it, but I like it. I'm going to be putting it into a cichlid tank and they love to have places to hide. I'll probably put in some java moss and/or ferns at least, but from what I hear, the cichlids I'm getting tend to eat and destroy just about everything else. I'm going to see if I can find some driftwood this weekend also to toss in there...
