"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.

"Looks great."

All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. At least any visible to the naked eye. Works great in my daughter aquarium. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size.

"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.

5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. My Vallisneria and amazon swords grow just fine in this substrate.

"I'm so glad I found this."

The color mixture with the darker colors in it does that very well. The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. I've been using it now for a couple of months and nothing has happened to them. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water.

"There is none."

The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it. So will just see if color stays-God willing! So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too.

"Nice gravel."

I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. Works great in my daughter aquarium.

"Gorgeous, quality gravel."

I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. Everyone ask where did i get that color. Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. I purchased to put into a dry river rock.

"I love this stuff."

I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. I half rinse it and put it in my tank.

"I have no complaints."

The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. They are rocks, what more do you need.

  • Seachem Flourite Black Clay Gravel - Stable Porous Natural Planted Aquarium Substrate 15.4 lbs
  • GRAVEL: Seachem Flourite Black is a specially fracted stable porous clay gravel for the natural planted aquarium. Its appearance is best suited to planted aquaria, but may be used in any freshwater aquarium environment.
  • AQUARIUM BED: Gravel modifiers such as laterite are not necessary when using Seachem Flourite Black as this product is most effective when used alone as an integral substrate bed, but it may be mixed with other gravels.
  • SET-UP: When adding water to the aquarium, fill slowly to avoid disturbing Flourite Black substrate bed. Place a bowl in the aquarium and add water directly to the bowl, allowing water to overflow softly on to the gravel bed. Initial cloudiness is normal, but to remove this simply use mechanical filtration
  • COMPATIBLE: Flourite Black substrates will work fine with an under gravel filter and will not soften or decompose to an unsuitable state within your tank.Flourite substrates will work fine with an UGF
  • SAFETY: Seachem Flourite Black is not chemically coated or treated, thus does not alter the pH of the water. Flourite Black is beneficial for the life of the aquarium and need not be replaced.

Seachem 3725 Final Thoughts

"Held its color when wet."

I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. It will take you a while to properly clean. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse.

I half rinse it and put it in my tank. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. Really like the coloring of them as well.

"About the size of."

It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. The pebbles are a perfect size for 30+ gallon tanks.

This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. Overall I am happy with the gravel. Obviously required a lot of rinsing. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out.
