"I do not own fish."

The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. Obviously required a lot of rinsing. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. So will just see if color stays-God willing! I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag.

Maynooth Natural Granite Final Thoughts

"It is quite lovely."

Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. Color is good contrast to the Beta. The 50 pound bag was jus barely enough for my 55 gallon tank!

"Purchased this for my 1."

Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would suggest this product to others.

"Beautiful gravel."

It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. Don't use any soaps or anything else. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. All n all, very happy with the purchase. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. Worked great for my succulent gardens.

"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.

"Love these!"

Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! Stir periodically and then your good to go! A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor.

"Beautiful and natural."

But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered.

Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. Minimal clouding gone within 12 hours. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it.

Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. Don't use any soaps or anything else.

"Nicely polished."

I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris.
