"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.

Pisces AM-SILVER010 Final Thoughts

"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.

"Purchased this for my 1."

This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel! Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. I WOULD recommend buying this item! I wanted white rocks that were vibrant.

"One for my 2."

I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. Everyone ask where did i get that color. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon.

Pisces AM-GUN010 First Impressions

"Good price too."

It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered. 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. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. Really like the coloring of them as well.

Pisces AM-GUN010 Final Thoughts

"Easy to clean."

They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. It will take you a while to properly clean. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank.

"Wet vs dry."

I half rinse it and put it in my tank. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. Don't use any soaps or anything else. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

"Overall this is good."

I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! One bag was open and had emptied into the box. We bought this for a glo fish tank. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

"Gorgeous, quality gravel."

I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel!

Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff.

"I got white."

But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. Fast delivery and item true to description. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good.

"Looks good in tank!"

For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! There is some sand and dirt mixed in. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks.

I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. Works great in my daughter aquarium. I really love this natural gravel, really makes my 20g High look natural! The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

Everyone ask where did i get that color. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. All n all, very happy with the purchase. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. Really like the coloring of them as well. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank.

"I love this stuff."

This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. We bought this for a glo fish tank. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop.

"The color is very pretty."

So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. The rocks look great and arrived very quickly. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium.

Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium.

"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.

"No complaints."

I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. Color is good contrast to the Beta. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. So will just see if color stays-God willing! Stir periodically and then your good to go!
