I have used lava rock for filtration in my freshwater systems for some time. Have any of you used it in your sump before as part of your LR filtration? I use this type of stuff in freshwater:

I have used lava rock in every tank I've ever setup. It's great for base rock. I rinse it throughly and have never had a problem. It's basically obsidian with trace amounts of iron.
