Not so, As Zer0 said that looks man made and not porus at all. almost like potery. No place except the surface area to colinize on...not much and a waste of space. It will not add to your filter system. If you like it's looks then go for it. For it's looks and not for more filter area.

That is what I said. purely speaking Live means it has bacteria growing on it. It will....just not much surface area.

As stated before, you could boil it. But it wouldn't be as safe and efficient as bleaching it. Bleaching will absolutely exterminate anything, so its best to bleach it.

Thanks for all the info everyone! I ended up not using the piece in my tank because it was too wide, took up too much room. I will remember what to do in case I have to add anything else into my tank.
