"I recommend!"

It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium. Color is good contrast to the Beta.

"Nicely polished."

I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would suggest this product to others.

"Nice gravel."

This is the real deal mother earth approx. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse.

"A few minutes."

I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. Fast delivery and item true to description. I WOULD recommend buying this item! The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away.

"It's gravel."

I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too. I've been using it now for a couple of months and nothing has happened to them. The pebbles are a perfect size for 30+ gallon tanks. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. My Vallisneria and amazon swords grow just fine in this substrate.

"Thumbs up!"

All n all, very happy with the purchase. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. Don't use any soaps or anything else. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. Worked great for my succulent gardens.

"Worked out great for me."

It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. Don't use any soaps or anything else. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone.

"So it really is natural."

Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. Don't use any soaps or anything else. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. We bought this for a glo fish tank. There is some sand and dirt mixed in.

"So it really is natural."

Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats.

"With normal tap water."

Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away.

"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.

"VERY GOOD."

Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. There is some sand and dirt mixed in. Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. Stir periodically and then your good to go! The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water.

"That's all I can say."

I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. At least any visible to the naked eye. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish.

"Love these!"

Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. Really like the coloring of them as well. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow.

"It's gravel."

I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye.

"Very easy to clean."

Originally I bought the black with colored stones for my 5 gallon tank. I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white.

"There is a simple remedy."

Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project. At least any visible to the naked eye. Had to move fish out after it nearly died.

"Very nice gravel."

Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium.
