    dont scrub them with soap but if you boil then it would be ok

    I don't see why not ..? like you said, as long as you didn't use soap but scrubbed very well :) Perhaps Boiling it may be more efficient in conjunction with scrubbing?

    Ok jon it's cool -- you asked for our advice and we were just verifying. especially since the "w/o soap" part is pretty important.... lol it should be fine

    I would also add some small amounts of dechlorinator to your tank after you add the rocks in case any chlorine gets released from the rocks. just to be on the safe side
