Rock

I found a rock that comes apart in my hands and I don't think it is limestone. Is it still safe to put in an aquarium?

First, welcome to AA! Secondly, try pouring vinegar over it, if it DOES fizz DON'T use it!!!! If it doesn't I don't see why not, just clean it off and watch the water parameters to make sure that nothing happens!

thanks, i also have some other questions if you happen to know why? I never see my crayfish eat, but they're pretty active. I put some food in and they leave it alone so i take it out after 30 minutes since i dont want it to decompose. I think it might be since i got them in a river and they dont like their box much. I also put the unfizzing rock in and it seems fine thanks! but they dont really use it much and mostly hide under it
