I like the blue actually. The dye will fade eventually over the years.

Blue Colored Tank Rocks

Hello joon,

I'm with mister. The blue is nice. You could try putting the rocks out in the sun for a few days. The sun might bleach out the color a little.

Or a little bleach solution bath will take the blue away.

If this is for a reef tank which it looks like it is for. I'd get new rocks. It's not worth the risk of killing all your live stock. Porous, caliciferous stone does not mix with bleach. It won't go away for a long long time. The Methylene blue will probably harm any inverts you have.

If its for a saltwater reef, It will be fine. Just blue tinted for a few weeks after that it will look normal.
