I use a low concentration of it...just to make sure anything living on the rock is dead....I use a 5 gallon bucket of water and a tablespoon or less of bleach...i dunno...never had a problem with it

Well the big chain pet stores don't normally carry base rock of aquariums. (At least ones by me don't) However there are two "ma and pa" fish stores near me and they both carry almost any type of base rock and at any size you could ask for. If I were you I would see if you could find a "ma and pa" store. Goodluck :)

Buying rock is expensive, get rocks and give them the vinegar test, if they pass, scrub them with a pot scrubber and 70/30 hot water/vinegar. If your keeping cichlids your water hardness going up will only be a good thing.

I got my rocks from petco... they came in a box for seven dollars... I always wondered why they put a box of big rocks on sale for seven dallors
