To test if they will alter the ph pour a little vinegar on it. If it fizzes it will but if it stays the same it wont

There are several ways to check...

First off, we’re did you buy them?

Secondly, if you pour vinegar on it, does it bubble? If so, it is not safe. That is just and easy way to test. But I really need to know where you got them.

It was called aquascaping of Florida I believe they had tons of rocks to pick from (not labeled) although he did steer me away from to types. Okay I'll give the vinegar a go.

Ok just did it, no bubbles. Then tested the theory with some pavers in the back just to see if it worked and they bubbled!

As far as gluing some plants to the rocks, will gorilla glue work?

I used the Gorilla Glue Gel. It says right on the package it is safe for use in aquariums. I could not find Gel Super Glue. The Java Fern has been glued on the rock and wood for 2 months now. No trouble. Everything is doing great. Plants growing, fish populating,.
