Mimosa Final Thoughts

"These rocks are perfect!"

This is the real deal mother earth approx. It will take you a while to properly clean. It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris.

"My tank is not done yet."

I really love this natural gravel, really makes my 20g High look natural! The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks.

"I love the color."

I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. I WOULD recommend buying this item! If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future.

"I recommend!"

I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. Stir periodically and then your good to go! I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice.

Mimosa First Impressions

"Beautiful gravel."

This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water.

Mimosa Final Thoughts

"Nice product."

Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. Bigger than normal aquarium gravel, nice colors, good quality, no smell.

"It is quite lovely."

Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. There is some sand and dirt mixed in. Really like the coloring of them as well. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium.

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.

At least any visible to the naked eye. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats.
