waterfall stones

I have read that limestone stones cannot be used in a water feature that
will contain fish. Isnt limestone alright as long as it is weathered and not
chipped or cracked????

Limestone can affect the pH of your pond, killing fish and maybe plants. I would avoid it. Check to see if it's limestone by putting a drop of acid on the stone, like vinegar. Does the stone bubble? Wait a few more minutes, is it bubbling yet? Then it's limestone.
