Saltwater rocks in a freshwater aquarium
I got some rocks recently from a rocky beach and was thinking about putting 1 or 2 of the nicer ones in my aquarium.
Does the fact they have been in salt water make them not advisable to use in a freshwater aquarium?
Exactly what type of rocks are they? I wouldn't use them as it will most likely raise your ph. If you're keeping cichlids that might not be such a bad thing but if it was me (and it's not) I wouldn't do it.
if you got them from the beach it would not be good to put it into your tank because it could give off the wrong kind of minerals
I got 4 large gold fish and they are doing well after a long journey after moving house so I want to keep it that way...
Limestone? Live rocks? Most rocks have live microorganisms in them. Your ammonia will increase if they die from the wrong specific gravity. Your goldfish do not require rocks in their tanks.
How many gallons is your tank??
Haha kymmie you know that whatever his answer is it will be too small for 4 large goldfish :P
I know, I know. I was hoping to hear that he had 36 gl per goldfish...:|
depends on the rock type ,any non-porus rock types can be well scrubbed and used eg granite,slate,quartz,flint,basalt
avoid linestone,chalk,coral,mudstone etc
its a 30litre tank...
I suppose when I mean large goldfish, they are all about 4-5" long
And when am mean rocks, they are actually stones...
