What Rock can I put in my Aquarium? – Aquarium Rock quick guide

What Rock can I put in my Aquarium? As an aquarist, I have always been aware that certain Rocks should not be put in the aquarium. I've seen loads of rocks in local rivers that would have looked great in my tank, but I have always avoided them as I am no rock expert and would be unable to identify exactly what they were.  Many aquarists have thought this for years and you will regularly see lists of rock that are deadly to your aquarium fish. This is why many aquarists spend a fortune on rocks from aquarium shops as that rock is deemed 'safe'. But this week I got into a conversation on this with someone much smarter than I am and was slightly more educated on the topic. So now I'm passing this knowledge to you: "Almost all Rocks are safe for the aquarium".
