"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.

Alan Stone Final Thoughts

"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.

"Very nice gravel."

Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. Everyone ask where did i get that color. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. Really like the coloring of them as well. Works great in my daughter aquarium. Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good.

"It's gravel."

The 50 pound bag was jus barely enough for my 55 gallon tank! But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. The pebbles are a perfect size for 30+ gallon tanks. Don't use any soaps or anything else. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. Stir periodically and then your good to go! Don't use any soaps or anything else.

Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. Works great in my daughter aquarium. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. We bought this for a glo fish tank. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank.

"I haven't used this yet."

Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. Minimal clouding gone within 12 hours. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks.

I half rinse it and put it in my tank. I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! Really just rinsed a little and ready to go.

Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank.

"Happy gardening!"

Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. Will definitely purchase again when needed. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse.

"Highly recommend!"

This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. It's my new, absolute favorite substrate. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great!

"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.

"Ideal for my tank."

I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water.

"I do not own fish."

I've been using it now for a couple of months and nothing has happened to them. 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. All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. Color is good contrast to the Beta. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium.

"VERY GOOD."

For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches.
