Rock coloration

What it look terrible if I had 3 rocks in my aquarium I found outside but they were different colors/shades? I' m afraid to break the rocks becuase they may just turn too small. I haven't seen and aquarium with different rocks. I'll post pictures later once I buy all my plants. Thanks a lot.

Try to find pics of an arican cichlid tank, they often have different colored rocks. I have black, white, and tan rocks and find it looks more natural.

Some colors go well with one another, and are often found in nature together. Some people like a uniform look, some don't. Some people try to recreate a natural look, while others decorate to their own taste. I would google/yahoo/what ever search engine pics of cichlid tanks (seeing they are mainly rock decor), or any fish tanks, and see what you think. Or you could just put the rocks in your aquarium and see if you like it. Every aquarium I have owned, I have redone countless times til I got what I liked.

Use whatever you want. It's your tank, YOU have to like it.
