"Be careful!"

Stir periodically and then your good to go! I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. Overall I am happy with the gravel. The color mixture with the darker colors in it does that very well. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this.

OUPENG Final Thoughts

"Just my thoughts."

Don't use any soaps or anything else. The pebbles are a perfect size for 30+ gallon tanks. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. Fast delivery and item true to description.

"Great product."

I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. Don't use any soaps or anything else. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone.

"There is none."

Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel! For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side.

3. Worldwide Imports AWW70395 Frosted Gravel, 5-Pound, Lavender Frost

Worldwide Imports 29571 First Impressions

"No complaints."

I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect.

"It is quite lovely."

Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. There is some sand and dirt mixed in. Really like the coloring of them as well. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium.

"One for my 2."

Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. Originally I bought the black with colored stones for my 5 gallon tank. All n all, very happy with the purchase. I wanted white rocks that were vibrant. The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect.

"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.

"Just as described."

It's my new, absolute favorite substrate. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. We bought this for a glo fish tank. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too.

"Love this blue gravel!"

I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. The 50 pound bag was jus barely enough for my 55 gallon tank! I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. At least any visible to the naked eye.

"I haven't used this yet."

I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough.
