"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.

Monster Pet Supplies 2018 Final Thoughts

"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.

Monster Pet Supplies 2011 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Good price too."

Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. Worked great for my succulent gardens. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. Had to move fish out after it nearly died.

CFKJ Final Thoughts

"Great quality."

Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. I've been using it now for a couple of months and nothing has happened to them. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good.

"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.

"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.

So will just see if color stays-God willing! Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. The rocks look great and arrived very quickly. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium.

Originally I bought the black with colored stones for my 5 gallon tank. I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white.

"No more gnats."

I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. It will take you a while to properly clean. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. I wanted white rocks that were vibrant. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too.

One bag was open and had emptied into the box. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank. It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. Really like the coloring of them as well. Works great in my daughter aquarium. All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use.
