Does anyone know a quick and easy way to test rocks to see if they are safe to introduce into your tank? Thanks for any help.

Small Fry with Ketchup
Carefully scratch the surface and apply a few drops of vinegar.
If it bubbles the rock will raise the ph of the tank.

Babel is correct about that test but if you have found it and know idea where it has been or the type of rock if the test proves OK I would still soak it then boil it just to make sure it has no nasties on the rock.
Have a look in [link=My Profile] http://www.fishprofiles.com/forums/member.aspx?id=1935[/link] for my tank info
