Will oyster shells buffer the PH as well? Just wondering why those and not crushed coral. I do kinda like the look though. Be watching to see what happens when they go in

Nice rock! I used oyster shells because it ended up alot more porous then crushed coral. DD, be sure to soak that rock in as large a volume of water as you can so the PH comes down faster.
