"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.

GloFish 29087 Final Thoughts

"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.

Pure Water Pebbles 029585 First Impressions

"I haven't used this yet."

Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. The color mixture with the darker colors in it does that very well. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too.

"Highly recommend!"

I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. Everyone ask where did i get that color. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium. I recommend doing it in smaller portions.

Imagitarium Final Thoughts

"I love the color."

These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium.

"I recommend!"

Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank.

"I really like the stones."

So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. Works great in my daughter aquarium. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor.

"Overall this is good."

Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. I really love this natural gravel, really makes my 20g High look natural! The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish.

I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants.

"Worked like a charm."

The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. Fast delivery and item true to description. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank.
