So I been seeing this discussed around the forums quite a bit. I'm wondering where I can buy this or if there are any alternatives to this? I am trying to aquascape an African cichlid tank and need something with a lot of caves and hiding spots etc. thanks in advance

I use lace rock. Same stuff you use in Saltwater tanks. Its easy to stack and make caves and hiding nooks in. It can also be broken apart pretty easy so you can get the right size and shape you need.

Do you have a pic? Where can I get this stuff? May be easier to mold than stacking a bunch of rocks together. Also, will they stay stacked if the cichlids decide to go on a digging fest?

I use it in my O2A tank. Great for making caves. Look at the thread on my Ode to Avatar tank.
Could you provide a link please?

I love Amazon Prime. And yeah. That's what I use.

Have you looked around locally by chance? I don't live in the most aquarium friendly city and order the majority of stuff online. But lace rock is one thing the LFS around here carry. The few LFS here are into marine more than fresh which is why I think they carry it.

I just put mine in. Rinsing won't hurt if there is dust on it.

Yea the box just arrived about 30 minutes ago at my office. I opened it up and it does look pretty dusty so I may have to rinse it off. But does it have the same properties as live rock (for SW) basically?

Same properties? It's the same stuff as Saltwater live rock, it's just not seeded with Saltwater bacteria. It's inert so it won't affect the water.
