"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.

"Fantastic gravel!"

Obviously required a lot of rinsing. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future.

"Nice rocks for my BioOrb."

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. I half rinse it and put it in my tank.

"Be careful!"

I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants.

"There is a simple remedy."

Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff.

I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish.

"Makes my fish tank glow."

I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible.

"I do not like fish."

I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. Minimal clouding gone within 12 hours. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. I wash it in small batches in a five gallon bucket before putting it in the tank. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. There is some sand and dirt mixed in.

"I love the color."

I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. I WOULD recommend buying this item! If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future.

"Fantastic gravel!"

Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go.
