Paint coming off Gravel

Post by Guest on 28/7/2012, 19:57

Im just getting a tank ready for a few new fish that I am getting, and have some gravel that is different colours.
On advice I boiled this gravel before putting it in the tank, but have noticed that when I am rinsing it that the Paint/Coating is coming off the stones
I don't feel very comfortable putting this in the tank now as I would be worried about the welfare of the fish
Has anyone ever come across this before Question
