Umm i think you CAN, but i dont know if its a great idea... Believe it or not your local beaches are probably way dirtier then your tank.

I'd try to cure that rock first. Its most likely safe but it could have critters or algae in it. If you have an extra pump or powerhead make yourself a little bucket of circulating water and put it somewhere for a month in the dark. This should kill any stuff that could hurt your tank.
