I was in the mountains this weekend :)



and I have found a couple of rocks :icon_eek: who I want to use in my second

iwagumi :icon_roll attempt.

I ask you all my friends to judge the rocks and give me a bit of advice.

because at first i wash them with water after I make the vinegar test

with vine vinegar and it was no bubbling at all, so i decided it's aquarium

safe, but after a good brushing and pouring some acetic acid ( industrial

vinegar :icon_roll ) on it. i got a lot of bubling, :mad: they look like marble and the

dark and black thinghs are pietrified ancient snail shells :).



Some one will tell my I can use them in a iwagumi ( I want to break the

big piece in two if the rocks are good ) or leave them like that

and use for room decoration purposes? :confused1:

U can use this kind of rock in a aquarium or they are backdrawns???



One or two of the little pieces had little rust spots on the side, it's that bad or goodi think the get some iron in proximity and the rust get on them?

If i will use only plants and no fish in the aquarium at all I can use them?




:fish:
