I know you can use lava and slate usually but idk about the others. Also I had some slate with high iron content in it so it rusted a little I thinks o just be safe and test it anyways. Also use the vinegar or HCL test. If it fizzes its not good.

He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

I got the list from here http://fish.mongabay.com/aquarium2.htm
The basalt looks cool if I can find it around here.It's a volcanic rock too.I already have some lava rock but was looking for something different.
