Has anyone used Big pieces of Rundle Rock in their tank? If so did you see any big changes in PH? I wanna add 4 pieces to my Cichlid tank just curious what will happen

Not sure entirely if Rundle rock is aquarium sage but the best way to test in my opinion is to take the Nitrate NO3 test solution bottle #1 from a freshwater test kit and put a few drops on the rock; if it fizzes or bubbles in any way its not safe for the aquarium, if nothing happens you should be mostly fine. Although I looked it up and it said its made of limestone which isn't usually aquarium safe.

I thought Limestone slowly releases carbonate which raises PH which is my goal. My Ph is only 7.4 and I wanna get it upto 8.0 for my cichlids.
