    Hi everyone,
    Does anyone know what rock this is? Is it good or bad? IMG_20181221_133342.jpg

    Lava rock or moon rock maybe
    Give it the acid test if it doesnt fizz should be fine

    I agree it looks like lava rock but as @Ammar said, give it the vinegar test to be safe

    That looks very similar to a rock I have in 1 of my tanks. Your foto is a bit blured but does it look like small pebbles stuck in mud? Sorry that is the best way I can describe it.[​IMG]

    I do the same, just now i have to make sure they either small enough to not be too heavy or big enough to not be moved around by the monsters
