Oh No!! I have had polished rocks in my 90 Gallon Freshwater tank for 4 months now. I had them soak in a bleach solution for a few days and then I soaked them in a bucket for a week in freshwater. I couldn't image that polishing powder would still be on the rocks!
Any idea what these polishing powders could do in a tank?
Should I take them out now...or has the damage been done.
I have had little problems with the tank (except for Algae Bloom). I have had no deaths...and somehow 3 baby Cherry BarB Fry have survived in this communiy tank setting.
I do not remember seeing that they said "not for aquarium use". I got mine at AW Moore. Hopefully it is a different brand that CAN be used in aquariums.
