Default Dragon Stone

I was wondering how long Dragon stone will last? Since it’s mainly clay, I’m afraid it will slowly erode in my tank.

Welcome to APC!

I have never used Dragon Stone, nor have I seen any, as far as I know. Those stone names are not the "official" names for the rocks. So, there may be more than one stone that can be called that.

It is sedimentary rock like mudstone, sandstone. They have gone through the process of heat and or pressure to form into rocks so they're not likely to erode when wet but they are fragile compared to the other types of rocks. Their holes and crevasses were made by moving water over time (decades).

I am using Dragon/Ohko stones for over 10 years now and they do not erode. Their holes are usually full of some kind of soil so when you break it and wash it, it can look like stone is melting, but that is only soil from the holes.

A quick Google search comes back with a lot of images with Dragon Stone in aquariums.
