Is travertine safe for aquariums?

PeteStevers

I wouldn't. Just because I don't know for sure. But, if you experiment and add it, let us know how it goes.

Probably not, based on what the Wikipedia page says. Since it's a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, it'll definitely raise pH - limestone's notorious for it's water hardening properties. Also, I'd be a bit concerned about metal contamination, depending on what dissolved minerals are in those springs.

My ph is already high, so I don't need that.

Thanks for the responses.
