    If you do go this route.... Please make sure you cure the rock properly.... I have seen (quite recent) how fish gets burned to death when someone placed the rock inside their tank without curing it......... Mine cured for weeks in freshwater, and then added them to saltwater

    salt dissolves leaving you with nice porous rock work

    I tried Hillfox yes, but there must be some shortage of some sort as there are so many of the Pet shops that dont have stock.
