Dead tank, redo with rocks
 
Well after a major blackout for a month, I'm redoing my shrimp tank. It's a small 5.5 gallon. Currently has just black petco sand as a substrate and a couple pieces of drift wood. It has been running for over a year with two resident Otos and rcs.

I have some java moss and a banana plant...that's it as of now.

I'm going to pull the drift wood out because I don't like it.

I live on the beach, so I'm going to go look for a few rocks to redo the tank with...my question is, will boiling the rocks be enough to take the salt and other nondesirables out? Any rocks to look out for?

Just went out to the beach with a flashlight and found a few pieces of granite. Boiled and they're cooling now. One has a high feldspar content. Should be fine right?
