I have recently aquired a few large pieces of pumice. They were in a friends marine aquarium years ago and I picked them up from his backyard. I was thinking of using some in my planted tank and maybe my girlfriends cichlid tank. Is this possible/wise? What should I do to prepare it? I was thinking of boiling it for a while. I will probably also use my dremmel to make some caves for the cichlids. Will it alter the water chemistry any? Any reason why I shouldnt use it? I was also thinking of covering one with java moss in my planted tank.

TIA

I am not one hundred percent positive, but you might start leaching salt into the tank and from my experience, plants really do not like salt. If it is only for decorative purposes, I might think twice about it, especially if the tank is already established. Either way, I would definately boil it for a while.
