How heavy is your rock? Looks a little on the heavy side. I think you might try a batch with a little more oyster shells in it to make it very light and the water will flow right through it.

its actually pretty light to me i would weigh a piece for ya but i dont have a scale there is a few pieces from one batch that turned out kinda heavy but this is mainly going to be a base rock the rest of my real live rock will still be a part of rock work and about the water flowing through it if i put a hose on this full stream move the house away the water on the rock just soaks straight through the rock in like half a second it didnt misplace but about 2 and a half gallons when i put all of the rock into the 29 gal
