Hi TMAN.
I'm not a rock expert. My general rule is, if I pour vinegar on it and it fizzes at all, it's a no go.

If I'm not mistaken, the fizzing just means that it will dissolve over time. I believe limestone will fizz, and that's what holey rock is.

Granite is inert and safe for aquaria

+1 I am using a nice piece of granite in my 20 gallon. Haven't had any problems and it makes the tank look more "natural"

Hey, I'm just about to start up and I have a load of granite that I picked up for next to nothing... Planned aquascape: Click image for larger version

Thoughts? I'm planning on moving the large piece slightly further to the right, but other than that pretty happy with the caves and crevices.

Good luck with your setup!
