Ya that's the one... I looked into it a bit... the rock looks nothing like mine... I believe that they were using perlite (not sure on that but that's what it looks/sounds like) and perlite is between 5-25% aluminum... some studies (garage scientists) have shown that aluminum is detrimental to corals. I use oyster shell (similar to coral in composition) as my main ingredient, it makes the rock heavier but safe for corals. (I hope) The cement (not ceramic like they used) I hope will be okay after having soaked in the ocean for a month. Keep watching to see what the results are... or just check back in about 2 years

I know someone on youtube who used somewhat of the same method for his base rock, and his tank is doing pretty good.

As I was saying I believe they were not using reef safe materials. I believe that the materials that I used are reef safe (after soaking). Time will tell.

GM, I made DIY rock like you did and my tank is 2.5yrs and going good. No problems. You just got to watch the innial PH that's the only thing that can mess you up.
