Functional environmentally safe rock. Theres notbing particularly wrong with it, although as was pointed out some people hate the paint.

If it's painted isn't it that it is covering the surface of the rocks which are supposed to be filled with bb?

Its not a conventional paint. Dont remember exactly what they used to paint it, but it's done specifically to preserve the porosity of thebroco.

Except that it doesn't hurt the environment by being mined out of existing reef structure like live rock is.

Very true. I also was thinking the paint closed up the pores.

I checked into that, they dye the rock rather than painting it.

I believe that this would be tied in with wanting more rock in your system. If the dye on this stuff is too much to bear, there is always real reef rock which would be my choice, I think.
