Yes, just be careful of rocks that may contain heavy metals, such as pyrite. If they are igneous it is probably fine, but do the vinegar test:
No matter what you do to clean the rock I think you should soak them/it in dechlorinated water for a while (hour?) before adding them to the tank.I am getting ready to setup my 32G tank and have decided to go with rock rather than driftwood. I live in New Mexico, and am surrounded by a lot of igneous rock. Is it safe to forage for "wild rocks" to stock the tank?
