Perlite is dirty and messy use lava rocks its all I have ever used and they work awesome. Just be sure to rinse any dust off them then place in your oven @ 350'f for 2hrs to clean and disinfect.

I would not think so, I don't see a use for lava rocks in any aquarium setup. But you can get them at wall-mart in the home & garden section or at most hardware stores. They are used for gas grills.

You can get small bags of red or black lava rock near the potting soil in stores like shroomologist said. I use something just like geolite, like it better because it's easier to clean gunk off before re-sterilizing. You don't have to rinse the clay balls 1000 times to get the loose dust and grit off them the first time either.
