You'll want to go with about 1-2 pounds per gallon. Look for good light porous rock with lots of large and small holes.

Ultimately, the total amount of rock you have will depend greatly on the type of rock you buy, and the look you're trying to achieve with your rockwork.

With livestock already in the tank, you will need to be sure the rock is fully cured and it will be needed to be added slowly. 1 rock at a time every few weeks.

Take pride in what you do, for it is a reflection of who you are.
