Wanted to get this but too big, may be useful for pond filters.

This is where I saw. Any change to the Ph? I saw the web states for alkaline loving plants. I'm ok for high Ph but cannot be too high. Thanks.

if you are worried on what kind of effects the stones might have on your water chemistry, why dont you try it on a small tank, just aerate the water and see what are the parameters after a few days? throw some BB & some frozen meat in there.

Ph is still ok. I controlling the Ph at around 8 for my fishes. My concern is whether this is safe to use in aquarium which I can't test without casualty.
