Crushed coral | Freshwater Aquarium Discussion Forum | …

 · The nice thing about crushed coral is that it doesn''t do anything rapidly so I wouldn''t worry about your fish and some type of rapid ph increase. I would put in a cup or so in the 125g tank.

Crushed Coral Use in Viv? | Dendroboard

 · This is my take on crushed coral in viv: I wouldn''t do it.

Pool sand/crushed coral/aragonite

 · To my knowledge pool sand hasn''t caused any health issues. Depending on where the crushed coral came from it is either a bunch of crushed up shells that they dredged up around Florida or it is broken off pieces of coral dredged up from around some reef. It is generally going to be very coarse. Personally, I dislike the stuff.
