does natural slate stone change parameters??

I have some left over natural slate stone that I used to make a habitat for our Leopard Gecko. If I stack this in the freshwater tank, to create a hide/deco, will it harm or change the water? I will boil first of course.



Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

never boil rocks. You can bake it IF you want. Regular slate though does not have any effect of the aquarium.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Nope, I've got tons of the stuff in my tanks.

Even in my 2.5g tank, I don't see any influence from the slate rock on water parameters. So I shall also add to the confidence that it will not bother anything.
