I have a cool piece of petrified wood from The Petrified Forrest in Arizona. Can I put it in my tank?

Yes, though depending on the composition, it may raise your ph over time.

My Ph is already like 7.8 - 8.0 so maybe I'll skip it then....What about Petoskey Stones they are fossils too?

It likely won't raise a tank with that ph. Just test weekly for a month or so, but I highly doubt you will see a change. It wouldn't be a fast. Change anyway

It can be any or a combination of silica, calcite, pyrite, or opal. I'm not sure about the calcite, but the rest are inert. I think double Dutch is right.

If it is opal, please send it to me
