"I love it."

The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. Really like the coloring of them as well. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris.

"Great product."

I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. I half rinse it and put it in my tank. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank.

"I haven't used this yet."

Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. Don't use any soaps or anything else.

"It's just what I wanted."

This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. This is the real deal mother earth approx. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light.

"So little by little."

I've been using it now for a couple of months and nothing has happened to them. Worked great for my succulent gardens. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. Really like the coloring of them as well.

"Nice big bag of gravel."

At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. The color mixture with the darker colors in it does that very well. It will take you a while to properly clean. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through.

"Great aquarium gravel!"

There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. We bought this for a glo fish tank. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough.

"These are perfect."

Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel! This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. Had to move fish out after it nearly died.

"I love this substrate."

Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks.

"Very nice gravel."

I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor. There is some sand and dirt mixed in. The pebbles are a perfect size for 30+ gallon tanks. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice.

"Makes my fish tank glow."

One bag was open and had emptied into the box. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. They are rocks, what more do you need. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

"First of all, the price."

But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. Will definitely purchase again when needed. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. I wanted white rocks that were vibrant.

"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.

I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice.

"Hope this helps!"

I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. I half rinse it and put it in my tank. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size.
