Yes, I do.
ADA use white pumice (which I think it richer in sylicates and allumicates
SiO4 & Al2O3) and they use 3 different sizes accordingly with the tank's
small size for tank less than 40cm high
medium size for tank between 40cm and 60cm high
large size for tank more than 60cm high
The small size I used is 5-8mm diameter in size.
