    Any media can be used to house bacteria. I doubt it will match even ten percent of the efficiency of Bacteria House though. For one the brick is not porous as such bacteria would hardly grow inside it.

    I doubt if the brick is inert. There's a possibility depending on the composition of the brick, ph would increase or worst the composition of the brick could contain heavy metals. You can crush the brick and leech it in acetic acid for a day and then test the acetic acid for traces of heavy metals by sending it for analysis.
