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 7-8 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!

Are the fish swimming at the top lethargic like or just trying to avoid the rock? What kind is it it might be lowering the ph, and the cloudy water just try to filter it out I have to do sometimes
