Vinegar Smell?

I have been collecting rocks for my aquarium. I tested them with vinegar, and everything was good. But now the vinegar smell won't get off the rock! I have been soaking it all morning and scrubbing. Will it harm the fish?

Vinegar is used for testing if the rock will raise the PH ;)
