My lfs told me not to put lava rock in my aquarium becuase it traps salt but it seems to me that it would be a good base rock and since it is very porous it could become good live rock down the line. Does anyone have any input on this?

Welcome to RF Jason! At first I wondered what you were talking about, then I realized you were referring to Nick's signature line. LOLOL.
