    some rocks are bad so only use LR or sand stone (cheaper) there are other types you can make just search other posts

    The idea is to have between 20-30% of good quality LR.
    The balance can be Ceramic rock or sandstone.

    Which kind of rock? I normally test rock with vinegar to see if it fizzes, if it doesnt then I clean it and bake it for like 30min. Could this also be a routine with possible marine rock?

    im not sure of the detailed composition of the base minerals of the porus base rock but
    i have found them in my LFS at a reasonable price and quite huge chuncks too :)
