can i use it in aquarium?

Asked by: samsymon
I would only use aquarium rocks sold for that purpose. Anything else might have salts or other chemicals that can poison your fish or mess up the pH over time.

Can I use this rock in my gas fire pit?

Asked by: TG
This lava rock is NOT for a fire pit. The rocks get hot and start cracking and exploding like bullets.

Customer Reviews

0.5 cu. ft. Decorative Stone Red Lava Rock is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good and Bad We decided in June to beat the drought and remove lawn with water free lava rock. We purchased about 60 bags of Vigoro Red Lava Rock that covered well with no problems. Today, October 7, 2015 I purchased another 15 bags to fill in some empty places. These bags were very poor in quality with 25%, or more filled with lava sand and not rock. Needless to say, the quality of this product has declined. We will not purchase any more Vigoro Lava Rock in the future. The enclosed photo will clearly show how this lava sand is in this material. Each photo is one full bag and the squared off area will indicate the lava sand therein.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from red lava rocks Well , I was going to by $100 worth of rocks, but these reviews changed my mind. I did buy some rocks about 4 years ago around $3.00 per bag. I was very pleased. This was for one big flower bed. They are still good today. then about two years ago, I purchased about three bags that were of poor quality. I was not happy. I was going to purchase some more today for another big flowerbed, hoping they had improved. But after reading this, I have changed my mind. Thank-you for the input. Also in South Carolina ,the price is now $4.63. Also the rocks I purchased 4 years ago work great on keeping the weeds out or from sprouting. I do not like mulch, because of termite problems.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too Many Very Small Rocks You better set aside some extra funds for your project because this stuff does not cover like you would expect. I originally bought rock from another hardware store & the rock was great, but thought the bag size was small. I needed about 4 more bags, so I thought I'd try this brand of lava rock. While the bags were larger, the rock was small and covered poorly. Because of the quantity of small marble-size rock, I suspect I'll need to buy more next year. I suggest you find another brand or be VERY selective about the bags you choose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This looks beautiful We have a small area that is overrun with weeds and the lanscapers have always put mulch down. This year we decided to try something different. I love the look and I think you will too, it was a very quick couple of hours work for how long I think it will last. The big plus is that it will last for years. Love it. The only drawback is make sure you buy twice as much as what the bag says, this is 12 bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love them!!!! I would recommend this to anyone wanting to do an amazing change to their landscape. After doing mulch year after year, this product was way overdue. It changed the look of our house. The mulch would fade and the landscaper would just come back twice a year and do it over. NOT anymore. We actually did it ourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Product was everything I expected it to be. My order was ready for pick-up when I arrived. There was someone there to load everything for me. It is so convenient to be able to order the products I want over the Internet and have everything ready to go when I arrive to pick it up. So much time is saved not having to wander around the store looking for everything and carrying all the heavy items around in a cart.
