Sorry this is a touch off topic. Do you only use air driven filtration Razzo?

Nope, I have two AC110s on there too. I like the surface disturbance with the sponge filters.

Sandstone won't raise your pH; Limestone and coral gravel/sand can act as a buffer and stop your pH falling below 7, but to raise pH you need to add chemicals. Sodium bicarbonate is usually used. This can take it to 8.2 which is fine.

Thanks, but is sandstone safe to have in my tank, I get mixed reviews from the web and was wondering if anyone here has tried to use them and to what effect? Also will it buffer up to 8.0?

Sandstone is perfectly safe but has little buffering effect as far as I am aware, although it may be bound together by a carbonate which would have some effect, but not significant I would have thought.
