"Great for my betta tank."

Photo 3 is during a diluted muriatic acid bath. But then again, it's 17lbs of rock so I struggled rating this one. It took me all day to get them at least somewhat cleaned off. I got a nice large piece that was about six or eight inches wide. Bought 2 then I needed more so got one more. These are just what I needed to creat stone walks in my model railroad park. I couldn't find these at any of the aquarium stores near me, chain or independent.

WAYBER 208 Final Thoughts

"Overall, a good purchase."

When I keep it lit for at least an hour, it stays glowing for at least three hours. I placed an order of 10ilbs for my 20g high. I wanted a large stone to stand out from the rest. Also, if you need any manzanita or any other driftwood. The water deactivates it and makes it safe. After playing with them for awhile now. I thought the price was great for the quantity and quality as well.

"Worth the buy!"

I purchased these for decor for my aquarium and I adore how they turned out. The resin color is dark, so no repainting needed.

"I would recommend."

These are just what I needed to creat stone walks in my model railroad park. These broken bits are perfect for little details and filling gaps. 2 small rocks and 4 medium ones and one large stone. Shipping was very fast and even came early. I also placed one or two inside her bathing dish to help her climb in and out better. I got six, nice sized chunks of slate. I am only giving 4 star because I had no way to request a larger stone after order.

"The price was excellent."

And I just realized they are using them to hide their babies. I love the stones, but yes, barely enough to cover a corner of my aquarium. I got several smaller pieces that were about four to five inches wide. No I dont work for them and no I dont get anything for saying that. The holed rock formation is a nice design, but the material being is way too thin. These are just what I needed to creat stone walks in my model railroad park. Loved what I got, highly reccomend these.

Small World Slate & Stone Final Thoughts

"No issues so far though."

They are making these by sloshing resin around in a mold, so it's really thin. These are just what I needed to creat stone walks in my model railroad park. Honestly it's a good idea to have some glue on hand anyways. They are worth very dollar, and a very good price. Different shapes and sizes to work with. I hate negative reviews for awesome items just because the buyer didn't read! The big rocks and theses small ones go perfect together.

"Yeah, yeah, I know."

I'm pretty happy with the rock I received. I purchased the caves for my 65 gal Lake Tanganyikan tank. Great stones, came with 3 various sizes for the 5 lbs option. It was well worth time and effort to get them clean. Just be prepared to buy several bags if you have a 20+ gallon. I thought the price was great for the quantity and quality as well.

Recieved 8 pieces of stone in my order with minimal chipping. Also, if you need any manzanita or any other driftwood.

"These are kinda gorgeous!"

The shapes very interesting and pleasant to look at. These are excellent stones and a great buy for the money! Waiting in my second bag as I'm typing this. When I opened the box I was so surprised and shocked. The edges of holes are also sharp, but easy enough to smooth with a razor knife. Def need to clean before putting in your tank. My buddy said he found a better deal on etsy.

It looks nice, and my kids had fun choosing which parts to hot glue onto the rock. It's a good price for what you get. I may have even used too much rock but I love how the scape came out with this rock. No I dont work for them and no I dont get anything for saying that. Would definitely love to repurchase this item. I was expecting this to be a thicker resin piece. The resin color is dark, so no repainting needed.

My only problem is trying to arrange them. I switched up my plans a bit and everything was lovely. Honestly not much more I can say about rocks. Hope this helps anyone that was wondering how we got our rocks so dark. Got this for my betta fish, he LOVES it. Will most likely buy more in the future.
