What is you decontamination process for these rocks to ensure there is no poison or residue on the rocks?

Alcohol, boil, bleach, sunlight, etc.

You can rinse it out if anything. Hydrogen peroxide solution soak would kill a lot of things. Some use bleach and just make sure you rinse it out thoroughly. I’ve gotten away with using an old toothbrush to remove any dirt/debris and rinsing under tap water.

And never ever boil rocks. Possibility of the rock exploding from the expanding water/steam. I’m sure there are some rocks that are safe to boil but do not risk it.

I think that as long as you don’t create big gaps in between those rocks, your fish should be fine. Just so that they don’t get their fins caught or themselves caught between the rocks.

Rinse them out as usual and put them on in!

Pressing the stones down into the substrate about halfway will not only prevent things (detritus, etc.) from collecting between the stones (or fish/fins getting caught), but it also looks much more natural. If you think about it, you rarely see rocks, stones or pebbles in a natural stream or lake that are resting entirely on top of the substrate. They either sink into the substrate from their own weight or else the sand/substrate collects between and around them, but either way, they end up half sunken.
