    Hello all! I am new to salt, and have a question as I contemplate converting my 55 GAL to a FOWLR. Can lava rock be seeded to become live rock? I have a nice chunk in another fresh water tank, and wondered if it would be a safe addition to a marine tank. Thanks for any replies!

    I've got probably about 80-90lbs of base rock in my tank right now. I want to try and seed it with some live rock. How much live rock do you think I'll need? Thanks!! Jay
