I use Granite and marble, just make sure to clean it really well, also make sure all edges are smooth to prevent fish from hurting them selves. Also many people use chunks of granite for cichlids to lay eggs on.

i put it in and noticed a steady stream of tiny little bubbles coming off of it, so now i have it sitting in a glass full of water saturated with some prime water conditioner, il put it in later if the bubbling stops
