Rocks

I noticed that a member used river rocks in a tank. What kinds of rocks are OK to use? Any to specifically avoid? Does this decision hinge on any tank buddies? Thanks.

I use river rocks I got from Hobby Lobby. They work great and I haven't had problems with my tank or fish.

Just be sure to boil them really well.

The three larger rocks in my tank are from some river... I think in Maryland given to me a decade ago from an old Science tutor. Ones black and smooth, ones sorta marbly and one is almost like a sponge, first time I put it the tank it bubbled for 10mins before it stopped XD

Smooth on the left, bubbly one sorta right middle and the inbetween one on the far right.

I don't know if this helps... the other stones are just Top Fin Glass... pebbles. And the shells are... From Marco Island from 10yrs ago hahaha

I got a 1 lb bag for $2 from PetSmart. They aren't all one color, either. You get a nice variety, and they're tank ready.
