    It's a very good thing, much better diversity in bacteria and types of rock etc. The most popular is kenyan cos it's cheap. Otherwise haven't seen much else except fiji and malaysian.

    kenyan LR being a little more dense than fiji is excellent for housing anerobic bacteria.. i prefer my rock to that of a simular density of kenyan..
