    Hello everyone,

    I have been an avid follower of the forum for some time now and have thus far failed miserably at contributing I'm afraid. I thought it was about time that I get involved, and as it happens I've been pondering this aquascape for the past couple of days...

    I was wondering whether anyone might have an idea as to what rock has been used? Or what rock might be as effective?

    To the first of many posts! :D

    Many thanks,
    Emma

    Welcome Emma!

    I can't really see from the photos what the rock is. It sort of looks quite rough, like lava rock, but I can't be sure. Going by the title "Rives volcaniques" it could be volcanic rock of some sort (lava rock).

    Cheers Steve,

    I had thought lava rock myself, especially as the moss seems to be doing so well on it. I'll have a look next time I'm at TGM. Love this aquascape, I think I've found my inspiration for my text tank.

    Regards,
    Emma.

    Lava rock can be bought at most supermarkets... Just check out the barbeque coals section ;) You should research if it's treated with any chemicals (standard disclaimer!) but I wouldn't of thought so...
