"I love this substrate."

I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too.

"Works great!"

I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. Will definitely purchase again when needed. I really love this natural gravel, really makes my 20g High look natural! The pebbles are a perfect size for 30+ gallon tanks. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank.

"Love the color."

So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. Color is good contrast to the Beta. Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. Overall I am happy with the gravel. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered.

"VERY GOOD."

For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches.

"Great aquarium gravel!"

Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. Stir periodically and then your good to go! We bought this for a glo fish tank.

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.

"Love these!"

It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. I purchased to put into a dry river rock.

"Held its color when wet."

I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough.

"Hope this helps!"

I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. I half rinse it and put it in my tank. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size.

"It's just what I wanted."

This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. This is the real deal mother earth approx. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would suggest this product to others.

"No more gnats."

It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. All n all, very happy with the purchase. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered.

"It is quite lovely."

All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it.

I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. They are rocks, what more do you need. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

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.
