Rocks?


Are these rocks safe to use in the tank? They're on side of the road.

With all the chemicals and oils and salts that are washed off the road by rain, I wouldn't use them.

I have been told that river/stream rocks work well if you have one in your region. Just make sure its not from a factory drainage or something similar.
