"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.

"The color is beautiful."

I wanted white rocks that were vibrant. Stir periodically and then your good to go! It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. Overall I am happy with the gravel. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel.

"I really like the stones."

Everyone ask where did i get that color. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would suggest this product to others. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor. My Vallisneria and amazon swords grow just fine in this substrate.

Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project.

"Nice gravel."

For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not.

"Just as described."

I wanted white rocks that were vibrant. My Vallisneria and amazon swords grow just fine in this substrate. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank.

"Beautiful gravel."

I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. It will take you a while to properly clean. At least any visible to the naked eye. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. Obviously required a lot of rinsing. Obviously required a lot of rinsing.

"Great quality."

Everyone ask where did i get that color. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. It's my new, absolute favorite substrate. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out.

Bofanio Final Thoughts

"Nice product."

Had to move fish out after it nearly died. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered.

"It's what I needed."

The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. The rocks look great and arrived very quickly. I half rinse it and put it in my tank. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand.
