    Try blowing on it....The lava rock just blows along with the leaves its so da mn light. I hate that crap too...Its every where around here. The pine needles and dust get imbedded in the tiny pores on the stone surface,,its hard as hell to get clean with the blower!

    Isn't that stuff worth money? Don't they sell a lot of it for aquarium rock?

    Only thing it's good for is drainage. It's excellent for that.

    You're thinking of Live Rock. Which is rock that has organic growth on it.
