That, plus live rock is mostly made up of the leftovers of coral skeletons and stuff in the first place, so it's going to shoot your hardness and pH up. Might be ok with livebearers or rift lake cichlids, though.

aquarium decorations, and a question about my new fish.

I recently bought two fish from a pet store, And it said they were red tailed sharks. But when i look them up, they are black. Mine are silver with just a little bit of red on the tail. Also, i was wondering if anyone has ideas about inexpensive ways to make decorations for my aquarium. Thanks!

Guess I better stop making Stone soup. Good to know that they can explode. I had never heard that.

I was wondering not that I own one. Would it be safe to place your rocks in a dishwasher rack and maybe just wash with water and see if this can be of some way of getting anything that may be living in that rock out just wondering if anyone with a dishwasher has ever tried. I'm not sure if this may be a safe method or not maybe someone else that has tried this can elaborate on this method as I think this would be some sort of safe method. I just was thinking out loud again I thought this may be a method to all you people who own a dishwasher being that the rocks are small not extremely large enough to fit in your dishwasher. Just a thing that make's you go hmmmm. Maybe even an invention in the making. LOL. Just my oppinion don't know again if this may be of some help or of some more things to be concerned about. Would someone who may have tried this method care to bring us up to your experience with dealing with this as I would think these rock may be at least dishwasher safe.

i always put my rocks in the oven at like 350 degrees for like 10 or 15 minutes. it gets them hot enough to kill anything on or in them without possible exploding :)

well thats because the title of the thread is "DO NOT BOIL ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!" haha. I recall seeing something in here somewhere about what kinds of rocks do what, but it might not be in it's own category. Maybe a special thread about things that raise and lower your pH would be good? If we don't have one already lol
