"Rocks are expensive."

Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light.

"A few minutes."

So will just see if color stays-God willing! Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. The rocks look great and arrived very quickly. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium.

The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time.

"Works great!"

Bigger than normal aquarium gravel, nice colors, good quality, no smell. I wanted white rocks that were vibrant. The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. Color is good contrast to the Beta. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water.

"Gorgeous, quality gravel."

My Vallisneria and amazon swords grow just fine in this substrate. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. Everyone ask where did i get that color. We bought this for a glo fish tank. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium.

"Hope this helps!"

One bag was open and had emptied into the box. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. Will definitely purchase again when needed. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop.

"Great looking substrate."

I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look.

This is the real deal mother earth approx. It will take you a while to properly clean. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project.

"Good price too."

Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. Overall I am happy with the gravel. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed.

"Great product."

I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. Don't use any soaps or anything else. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone.

"There is none."

Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel! For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side.

"And a great price."

I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. Originally I bought the black with colored stones for my 5 gallon tank. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon.

"So it really is natural."

Everyone ask where did i get that color. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank.

"Highly recommend!"

Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. So will just see if color stays-God willing! This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. So will just see if color stays-God willing!

"Perfect size."

Stir periodically and then your good to go! Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it. The 50 pound bag was jus barely enough for my 55 gallon tank! It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. The rocks look great and arrived very quickly.

"Nice gravel."

I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. Works great in my daughter aquarium.

"Fantastic gravel!"

Obviously required a lot of rinsing. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future.
