Will coral work?
    #3190743 - 09/28/04 10:26 AM (12 years, 28 days ago)

Just out of curiosity... Do you think dead coral pieces will work instead of geolite in PMP? They have small holes all over and are readily available here.(Just have to go out to the beach with a bucket.) They vary heavily in size and most shorelines here are flooded with them.

If you want a rating from me, please PM me.  For those really newbies, don't expect an answer back, but you can try me anyways.

Yeah go for it. I think that that would work wonderful. You might want to soak them in a dilute bleach mix before hand. Then rinse VERY thoroughly afterwards.

Should work good but I would make sure you find smaller peices..like quarter size..

I think they will work fine

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
