Bubbling rocks

Postby Basolisk » Sun Apr 20, 2008 6:31 pm

I whent to a landscapeing company and purched some rocks. I asked for granit. Now I have placed them into my new tank and have some that are bubbling. How long should I whate for this bubbling to stop? I have heard the bubbling rocks are no good for the fish. I have some pictures below. Also how do you like the rock lay out?

my rocks are limestone, which kinda look like yours... mine bubbled for a little while, maybe overnight, but i don't think it is really bad for the fish... i just think that means the rocks are poris... mine are done bubbling and i have no problems....

tank look pretty good... i had my previous setup like like(one big system in the middle)... i am steering away from that due to that a dominate fish may take control over the whole thing, versus if you had multiple systems in your tank...

Thh rock system pritty mutch covers the whole back of the tank except for maby 5 inches on the left and about 8 inches on the right. Just enough to keep the heater and canister filter intake and return clear of the rocks.
