"A few minutes."

I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. All n all, very happy with the purchase. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size.

"Nicely polished."

Works great in my daughter aquarium. Really like the coloring of them as well. All n all, very happy with the purchase. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. They are rocks, what more do you need. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away.

"It's what I ordered."

A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. We bought this for a glo fish tank. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time.

"Wet vs dry."

Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta.

SACKORANGE Final Thoughts

"Beautiful and natural."

But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered.

"Worked out great for me."

Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered.

"The color is very pretty."

So will just see if color stays-God willing! At least any visible to the naked eye. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice. This is the real deal mother earth approx. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered.

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.

"It's just what I wanted."

I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice.

"These rocks are perfect!"

Will definitely purchase again when needed. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. I WOULD recommend buying this item! It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. I wash it in small batches in a five gallon bucket before putting it in the tank.

There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium. Minimal clouding gone within 12 hours. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. They are rocks, what more do you need.

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. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too.
