    hi all.

    I have recently setup a salt water tank and really like the look of live rock and ocean rock. I have a 15G tank that I have just broken down and im thinking of setting it up again, Can I use ocean rock in a tropical aquarium?

    how much would ocean rock alter the Ph of the water?

    thanks in advance

    I'm not really sure how it would go but I do think it would probably raise the PH significantly. Just how much is going to depend on what the PH of water straight from your tap is. Personally I would give it a miss. Live rock won't be "live" for very long in a freshwater environment anyway.
