are these rocks okay to put in my aqaurium?!


I went hiking in Woodville Mississippi this past weekend and found these rocks in a creek. Can anyone identify them? or tell me if you think they are alright to put in my tank?

you can drop vinegar on them to get a rough idea, the other way would be to drop them in water that has a known GH and KH, and let it sit for a few weeks and measure if there is a change. If there is a change, then you might not want to use them.

Oh alright thanks Noahma! I gave them the vinegar test and I didn't see any bubbles or fizzing, but I shall try the GH and KH test just to make sure
