Rock Haul..!

so i found a local landscaping company that sells small boulders and sand for landscaping, and turns out the yard hand handling the loader is a local fish enthusiast and loaded me up a bucket of boulders and when we get to the scale turns out i over shot my 100lb mark and got about 185lbs of rocks, he walks inside and tells the clerk to charge me for 100lbs and i got it for $0.12/lb! came out to $14.07 in total plus he threw in a couple slate peices he had in the bucket from that last load! today is officially a good day

I've posted my builds in the cichlid section and no one has complained about it.

Ok guys.. Should I be worried..? After wetting my rocks they turned out more yellowish white and orange than white. And I just put a few rocks like 5-6 in my tanks and my waters a bit cloudy, I gave em a good wash with the hose and a firehose nozzle on the end. Is this rock safe..? Should I just let it clear? My fish are kinda avoiding the rock right now but I'm guessing because its kinda alien to them? Help asap!
