    Hey guys. Ive been wondering if you could use lava rock as a filteration system. I seen people put rock in their sumps and was wondering if i could do the same with lava rock. Im not sure if the rock they used was live rock or just an ordinary porus rock. If anything, let me know. Thanks

    Hi. I'm currently using a Fluval 404 as my MAIN filtration unit. I am using a prizm skimmer as well, and it is quite finnicky. After reading a bit, I can see canister filters arent well loved however, for the sake of my survival (wife) after buying this I am stuck with it. What I'm worried...
