Yep.. I feel a bit ripped off, but I really liked the shapes, holes, size and Colour of the rock in that tank setting.

Still not getting any sleep wondering what it is Wondering if it might be some volcanic rock from Bali as I've seen pieces from there that have nice shapes.

Re sealing second hand tank

Thanks guys.

Lol Craig, thanks for caring that you lost sleep.. I do think you might be onto something tho with volcanic origins. For sure. I still paid too much, but it was a free tank and I paid cash, so hubbie can NEVER find out what I paid for a ROCK.

I'm almost certain it's volcanic: I used to have racks similar to that in my own tanks.

Still wondering If only we could break off a little bit, do some drilling and maybe some acid....

Is it white underneath? Also wondering if carbonates (if it doesn't seem heavy).

Hi Craig, I'm certain it's volcanic. It's not chalky at all, very heavy. It had a couple of chips in it already and it's red rock wherever I see a chip. I'm cycling the tank ATM with the rock in it, and have used very soft (tested)water. If water hardness changes then that can be a good check. I guess?
