    Is this rust? I'm not sure what kind of rocks. They were at Petsmart and are a top fin brand. Should I return them? 20180425_164459.jpg 20180425_164431.jpg 20180425_164423.jpg
    Edit: I realize I posted this is the water forum. Wrong section.

    it looks like algae or maybe just debris your fish should be fine

    I have these exact rocks, and it is not rust.
    They have been used in my tanks for a while, and I have seen this come and go from them.

    Does it rub off?
