This will be a nice addition to any African cichlid tank! I told you I have some insane rocks, Tom.

That's a real rock. It looks good and buffers the pH. Form and function :D

That is 100% Texas holey rock. I've used this rock for soft coral propagation, base rock, etc. That rock weighs about 10 pounds I think. I actually have nicer pieces than that!

Since it is calcium carbonate/dolomite, it is ideal for any tank that requires higher pH.

BTW, these rocks are almost black when I find them. They go through a several step process to look like that.

Do you buy it, or find it?
