Unwashed lake rocks in a tank...
A coworker just moved his tank from his office into our sitting area... he has convict cichlids and jack dempseys in the tank. Yesterday, I got to work and 3 convicts were dead. This morning, 2 more were dead. He is away at a trade show... so I texted him asking if they needed more hiding spots, because when he moved the tank, he removed most of his decorations and so there were just 3 small pieces of driftwood at the bottom of the tank which really didn't provide any cover.
He texted back saying "maybe... put some rocks in?" So I went to his office, where he had some rocks that he'd brought specifically to go into the tank, grabbed them, and put them in the tank.
He just texted me saying "did you wash those rocks? I got them from the lake."
So... do I take them out and wash them, or... now that they're in the tank, do I leave them, assuming that the damage is done since they've been in there for an hour or so?
