Lava rock

HHHHHMMMMM you know I do have several pieces that are kinda big...
and they dont weigh all that much... you know I bet they might be
Lava Rocks.....
has anyone had any problems with these style Rocks in their tanks?

and I guess you could go to the local Land scape company to pick
some up.... ???? any thoughts?

ONCE your convicts had babies.. did you remove the adults or the babies?
or did you seperate them at all.....

I have not had the dwarf onion plant, only the regular. The regular one has a bulb. The bulb has to be half above the gravel, otherwise it will start to rot. Does the dwarf have a bulb?
