    Do we need to treat these rocks before putting it in the aquarium?

    70 cents is really cheap, can buy a lot to play with the scaping or store for future project.

    Same as with rocks you buy from LFS, you should wash and scrub them to clean off any dirt or contaminants before use in your tank.

    Yeah, usually people will get double or triple the amount they need for a tank, so that they can have more options to mix and match the right ones for their scape... keeping many bags and boxes of spare rocks in storage is quite common amongst aquascapers.

    For these grey rocks, any special handling before putting in aquarium? Is washing them with water/sun dry sufficient? Or need any "chemical" to wash?

    They are basically like normal rocks sold at LFS, just wash and scrub them with a brush to get rid of any residual dirt or soil attached, and then they can be used in the tank.

    Some people might go further and even boil or dip them in hot water to kill any possible bugs or critters that may be hiding in the crevices of the rocks.

    I guess you could also use chemicals like bleach to clean the rocks too... but do make sure that the rocks are properly washed again to get rid of the chemicals that were used.

    Do you mean that it will leech out calcium making the water hard and higher ph? Any ways to go around this issue?

    You could bring some vinegar and pour it over the rock �� The acid in the vinegar would react with the Calcium Oxides. If it reacts you should see bubbles of gas.
    Cheers,

    Yup, got some rocks from LFS previously. Somehow by TDS went up, so I try removing them, and TDS went down.

    Thanks. Was thinking of doing that.
    Anyone successfully used the stones from this place without affecting their water parameters?

    Hi Lantian, are you going to use back those stones? If you are, how are you treating it before placing it in the tank?

    Throw liao. Dun wanna take the risk. I think larva rocks & dragon stones should be quite neutral. Anyone here tried before?
