Uncertain category for this, - anyone know of a good source for tufa rock?  Y'know, the white porous lightweight rock.
I'd heard it was getting scarce? Good for Rift Lake cichlids & marine base rock.

You need to find someone in the Sandusky, Ohio area to go get you some off the farms where it comes up through the ground. It used to be easy to get and then the farmers quit letting people in to get the rock from their fields. I have been seeing it again at the auctions so that may mean they are collecting it again off the farms. How much are you thinking you need? I may have some here that I am not using but it will have to be soaked with a bleach mix since it has been underneath the side porch for a good while. I once bought a ton of it and sold most of it off and only have left what I was using when I kept African cichlids. I am not sure how much is there.
