Sansibar Rock: is it a good choice for octopus?


Aug 16, 2021
Hi there, everybody…

Is it true that sansibar rocks are not a good choice for an octopus tank?
Someone told me they may cause harm to invertebrates, including octopus…the explanation had something to do with the rock composition…too alkaline, compared to live rock…(don’t know if it makes any sense, I’m just writing what I have been told…)

Does anyone know if It’s a fact? or a myth?
Thanks a lot.

PS. Sorry for the mistyped title: food=good…
