They look ok. Did you try the vinegar test to see if they bubble or fizz?

Very cool! After you boil them and let them cool they are tank ready

I think so, you might want to take them out & boil them before putting them back. Maybe a partial water change too if you're concerned.. I'm not sure it's necessary though. I'll let Butterfly give you a definite answer to what to do with those rocks.

Since the rocks are already in there I would go ahead and leave them
