Monkeypoint Posted December 3, 2022 Share Posted December 3, 2022 In resetting my 10 gallon tank, I'm considering looking for rocks locally (as in, from a nearby creek a few blocks from my house). Is this too risky, even if the rocks are boiled? Can pathogens or bacteria still exist? Is it simply not worth the risk? I know certain types of rocks can alter PH and water hardness. I'm planning on keeping the Fluval Stratum that's currently in the tank and adding Eco Complete on top of that. The Stratum has brought the PH in my tank down to 6.6 (PH in my 55 gallon is always at a steady 7.8). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
