"Great looking substrate."

Everyone ask where did i get that color. Worked great for my succulent gardens. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great!

Miukada Final Thoughts

"It is quite lovely."

It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. They are rocks, what more do you need. Stir periodically and then your good to go! I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. I've been using it now for a couple of months and nothing has happened to them.

I half rinse it and put it in my tank. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. Don't use any soaps or anything else. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

"Overall this is good."

I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! One bag was open and had emptied into the box. We bought this for a glo fish tank. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

3. Pure Water Pebbles Aquarium Gravel, 2-Pound, Neon Rainbow

Pure Water Pebbles 70302 First Impressions

"No complaints."

I wash it in small batches in a five gallon bucket before putting it in the tank. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine.

I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. I half rinse it and put it in my tank. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. I WOULD recommend buying this item! The rocks look great and arrived very quickly.

"Great for plants!"

Originally I bought the black with colored stones for my 5 gallon tank. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect.

"These rocks are perfect!"

I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. I wanted white rocks that were vibrant. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse.

"Exactly as pictured."

Fast delivery and item true to description. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. So will just see if color stays-God willing! Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. I WOULD recommend buying this item! I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel.

Alan Stone Final Thoughts

"Works great!"

Bigger than normal aquarium gravel, nice colors, good quality, no smell. I wanted white rocks that were vibrant. The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. Color is good contrast to the Beta. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water.

"And a great price."

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. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed.

There is some sand and dirt mixed in. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

"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.
