Best kind of rocks to use?
 
Hey everyone, quick question.

What are the best kind of rocks to use in an african cichlid tank?

Thanks!

I like slate. It's flat and easy to build with without gluing pieces together and not having them fall over after a few days or so being set up.

If you want your pH higher 8.0+ then use rocks that help raise the pH of the water.

I use many different rocks. Lava lace rock, pagoda stone, tufa rock, even petrified wood. Alot depends upon the color of gravel I am using. Lava lace is probably the one I use most.
