    Hi,

    Wanted to share some rock I recently got...
    Can anyone identify these?

    I have been using these for one of my previous tanks for almost a year now. Never tested the water though.

    not a clue but it is beautiful rock.

    Nowadays I don't bother checking the water parameter, as long as all plants grow healthy.

    yes I am :D

    @ hamza: those rocks looks like limestone to me... test with HCl (acid chloride) to confirm it,
    if fizzing, that 99% limestone or marble.
    if its not, maybe that is Jasper (altered silica/quartz)

    fyi, sometimes it's very hard to describe rocks only from picture... so I can be 100% wrong..
    even I touch and looks the rocks directly, I still can go wrong

    Looks like limestone to me too but I am no geologist but my neighborhood has lot of limestone that look a lot like these. Maybe if you share the origin then it will be easier to pinpoint the identity
