Question about live rock

What would happen if I put live rock in a fresh water tank?

I would venture it would become nasty looking base rock.

My guess is everything live would probably die because they are saltwater organisms. Also it might raise your parameters. I wouldn't try it. Interesting thought though........

Yeah I wouldn't try it, I wanted to know if it would work as a normal base rock or mess up the parameters of the tank
