    Wanna add some biorock to my tank (gonna add a lot more flow and some more LR to improve the filtration)

    where can I get it in JHB and how much does it usually go for?

    lanzo: all sorts of shapes ;) It's essentially just porous rock, good to use as a base then put LR over it. Else some people use all bio-rock and then wait for it to be colonised by bacteria...

    The bio-rock made of cement isn't great apparently, its the ceramic stuff thats good! ;)
