  1. We use Ceramic Media made by Reef One. It has bacteria on it which eats fish poo so you don’t have to clean them out :o )

    Lace rock is great for making live rock – I prefer it to the “reef bones”, travertine, Texas holey rock, or other carbonate rocks that are/could be used because of the larger pore (openings) sizes for bacteria to colonize. The only thing about it some people don’t care for is the orangish color to it.

    And at about $1.50 (at my local stores, anyway) it’s afforable.

    I would suggest you get this through a local store – the shipping costs for 20 pounds is going to increase even a cheap price very quickly. Plus, at a local store, you’d be able to pick out sizes and shapes you want, rather than taking what your sent. If your local stores don’t carry this, as if they could order some – most stores will place special-order items for their customers.
