Texas holey rocks are very porous and look good. I have one that I am using to cycle a tank because I had it in another tank. Limestone looks good also. But make sure you can get some small parts of it seeing as your tanks are quite small.

My plecos love my THR even though they prefer driftwood. They were sad when I took it out to help cycle my other tank. There are also some websites that sell THR's.

Heres a link to one:


The section you are looking at is the small rocks section.
