Hi. I would like to add some rocks to my tank. I bought some in petsmart and my son found some on the beach.  Can I boil the rocks he found on the beach and add them or just boil the ones from petsmart.  I see a lot of setups have nice rocks in them.  Just would like to know what has to be done to them before adding them

Thank you

I've added rocks from the beach to my tank, what I did was first see if they reacted to vinegar (If it bubbles it can affect your water chemistry if i recall correctly), then I poured boiling water over them. I've read a lot that its not a good idea to actually boil rocks because there's been cases when they explode.  

The ones from petsmart I'd probably just put in, unless they were in tanks at petsmart
