Hi, as a homeowner, I’ve got pounds of leftover tile. Although some too big to use, some are perfect colony size for coral frag propagation. Some of the fancy tile might look pretty cool in the tank as well

is there any reason to believe that house grade or even commercial grade tile would be unsafe for the marine environment? Keep in mind that it’s all never-used tile that I would soak in RO.
Thanks team!

Glazes might contain heavy metals.

Mine like 1corner of the tank. Sometimes eggs at bottom and sometimes at top. They play in a torch close by and never go near the anemone. Clowns .....
 

So what do you think about running carbon as a filter for your aquariums?
