"You will not be sorry."

They are the perfect little hideaways for them! Great product and it will definitely be buying more. Every living thing in both tanks are healthy and as far as I can tell happy. Items delivered match the product description perfectly. So glad I bought these for my tank. But it was definitely not what I expected. Shipping was very fast and the stones were in excellent condition.

CaribSea Aquatics 008479003768 Final Thoughts

"Now let me say one thing."

Hope this helps anyone that was wondering how we got our rocks so dark. My only problem is trying to arrange them. They are making these by sloshing resin around in a mold, so it's really thin. I will not be able to get all 7 rocks in my Bio Orb 8 gallon tank. I got this for my 10 gal and it fits beautifully! The bag I received was 17lbs and the rocks were in good condition. My cichlid love hiding under the caves.

2. Green Aventurine SM Aquarium Safe All Natural Stone, Metaphyscial Healing, Chakra Stones

Greenwich Ornamental Stone First Impressions

"Great stones."

Honestly it's a good idea to have some glue on hand anyways. Super happy with what, only downside is I should've bought 2. The resin color is dark, so no repainting needed. After playing with them for awhile now. I am looking forward to getting my tank stocked up! I got six, nice sized chunks of slate. I really hope they upload the other 3 pictures.

Greenwich Ornamental Stone Final Thoughts

"I would recommend."

I thought the price was great for the quantity and quality as well. For an Iwagumi layout, this would be the Oyaishi. These broken bits are perfect for little details and filling gaps. Would definitely love to repurchase this item. I love the look and color of this stone. Great stones, came with 3 various sizes for the 5 lbs option. This isn't even all of them in the photo.

"Again, rinse them good."

They arrived in tact and were all the size described. My buddy said he found a better deal on etsy. Worth every penny, my nano looks great. Other fish may not like the ph change. Bought 2 then I needed more so got one more. I wanted a large stone to stand out from the rest. The big rocks and theses small ones go perfect together.

"So far so good."

You definitely get a lot of slate for the price. Hope this helps anyone that was wondering how we got our rocks so dark. I will not be able to get all 7 rocks in my Bio Orb 8 gallon tank. If you are thinking about buying these, DO IT. I was very pleasantly surprised with these dragon stones. Waiting in my second bag as I'm typing this. And I had some left over rock, mostly because I use a lot of driftwood and plants.

4. biOrb Red/Pink Aquarium Pebbles, Two Pack Bundle

biOrb First Impressions

"Exactly what I hoped for."

The edges of holes are also sharp, but easy enough to smooth with a razor knife. My only problem is trying to arrange them. Perfect size just what I needed not as many as I expected. I may have even used too much rock but I love how the scape came out with this rock. Don't even hesitate purchasing these stones. I wanted a large stone to stand out from the rest.

biOrb Final Thoughts

"LOVE these rocks!"

They arrived in tact and were all the size described. These glow very brightly and are super light weight. Great product and it will definitely be buying more. I got a nice large piece that was about six or eight inches wide. I love the stones, but yes, barely enough to cover a corner of my aquarium. Super happy with what, only downside is I should've bought 2. I had to break up some of the larger ones to fit what I was looking for.

And will change the hardness and ph of your water as it leeches. And placed in a 36 gallon bowfront. I wanted real stone instead of the fake stuff at the local box stores. If you are still questioning your purchase please re-read the headline. I really hope they upload the other 3 pictures. Cleaned the dust and clay residue off under running water and some brushing.

You definitely get a lot of slate for the price.

"Nice big pieces of slate."

2 small rocks and 4 medium ones and one large stone. Would definitely love to repurchase this item. Def need to clean before putting in your tank. I love the look and color of this stone. I use it in my resin art work and it looks fantastic! Not bad at all for twenty bucks total. If you see black substrate, that was still waiting for the 2nd bag.

The edges of holes are also sharp, but easy enough to smooth with a razor knife. Don't even hesitate purchasing these stones. I soaked the rocks for about 20-25 min, took them out and hosed them off really well. I am looking forward to getting my tank stocked up!

"Looks so good."

Not bad at all for twenty bucks total. These are just what I needed to creat stone walks in my model railroad park. My only problem is trying to arrange them. No I dont work for them and no I dont get anything for saying that. Don't even hesitate purchasing these stones. Was a LOT to clear off the gray dust if using in an aquarium. Other fish may not like the ph change.

"Nice big pieces of slate."

So I bought these thinking I'd get much bigger pieces. I also placed one or two inside her bathing dish to help her climb in and out better. Truly something unique that will appeal to any aquarist. Trying shipping this much heavy stone. Loved what I got, highly reccomend these. My cichlid love hiding under the caves. Just hit the add to cart and wait until you get the dust off and see them wet.

10. Natural Slate Stone -1/2 to 1 inch Stones for Miniature or Fairy Garden, Aquarium, Model Railroad & ...

User Ratings: 78 2

Small World Slate and Stone First Impressions

"HIGHLY recommended."

It's simple slate rock but it's natural and really great for my box turtle terrarium. It's not difficult but you need rinse over and over to get the water clear. I've bought quite a few packs to get the volume I needed. Hope this helps anyone that was wondering how we got our rocks so dark. But it was definitely not what I expected. Would definitely love to repurchase this item. 2 small rocks and 4 medium ones and one large stone.

  • Natural Slate Stone -1/2 to 1 inch Stones for Miniature or Fairy Garden, Aquarium, Model Railroad & Wargaming (1)
  • NATURAL SLATE - 100% real Slate stone will add beauty and realism to your creations. Because these are natural stones, each bag is a mix of stones from 1/2 to 1 inch. They are safe to use in your scenery and will last much longer than resin stones. Product of the USA
  • PERFECT for creating walkways, benches, steps, archways, caverns and more in miniature or fairy gardens, model railways and doll houses.
  • EXCELLENT for Aquascaping aquariums, terrariums, vivariums and other pet enclosures. These stones naturally hold heat for reptiles or other heat loving pets. They can be glued together with aquarium safe glue to create caves, cliffs and mountain ranges for fish and plants.
  • BEAUTIFUL for bonsai. Use in home decor in bowls and vases and as ground cover for indoor plants. Great size and shape for rock painting. Gives wargaming miniatures natural and realistic scenery.
  • COLOR - These stones are a natural grey slate that are darker when wet or can be more permanently darkened by using a sealant or clear finish (do not use sealant or finish in pet enclosures or aquariums). Because this is a natural stone, slight color variations including some white quartz or brown stones may be mixed in.
