"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.

"It's what I needed."

Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium. Fast delivery and item true to description. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great!

"Exactly as pictured."

Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. Bigger than normal aquarium gravel, nice colors, good quality, no smell. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium.

"I split the 15."

Very random shapes and colors that blend well. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. Will definitely purchase again when needed. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. I WOULD recommend buying this item!

"Looks great."

Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel.

"The color is very pretty."

I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor.

"Good price too."

Had to move fish out after it nearly died. It will take you a while to properly clean. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. Worked great for my succulent gardens.

"So it really is natural."

I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. Really like the coloring of them as well. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor.

"Hope this helps!"

One bag was open and had emptied into the box. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. Will definitely purchase again when needed. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop.

"Great looking substrate."

I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look.

"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.

I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. Worked great for my succulent gardens. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium.

"Beautiful gravel."

I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through.
