Sandstone in saltwater?

Can I put sandstone in my saltwater aquarium? I have live rock, damsel, royal gramma, goby, clown fish, crabs, snails, urchin, and a small zoa coral. Thanks!

No, sandstone will break apart over time in a tank.

sand stone in the most basic way of explaining it is a bunch of sand stuck tightly together to make a stone, add water and flow and let it sit, itll turn back into sand over time.
