Tufa for base rock??

I was wondering if anyone has used tufa for base rock. I just bought a piece of tufa rock from my LFS and I was wondering if I would be able to use it. On the GARF website it says that most tufa is reef safe but make sure it is. i am guessing that since I bought it from my pet store that it should be reef safe right?? Also it says that Coraline grows the fastest on this rock. it is very pourous too so I think it will do good. Any thoughts at all??

I have tufa rocl on my tank and it's doing great. I have no problem. Indeed tufa is pourous and can assist in bacteria colonization.
