"Happy gardening!"

I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. At least any visible to the naked eye. The pebbles are a perfect size for 30+ gallon tanks. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. Just make sure you rinse it out REALLY good, before adding to your aquarium. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more.

POPETPOP Final Thoughts

"Fantastic gravel!"

The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel! Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most.

"Looks great!"

I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered.

"Nicely polished."

I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris.

"I do not own fish."

They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop. I purchased to put into a dry river rock. I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs.

"Beautiful gravel."

There is some sand and dirt mixed in. I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. Stir periodically and then your good to go! Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks.

"Beautiful and natural."

I WOULD recommend buying this item! Bigger than normal aquarium gravel, nice colors, good quality, no smell. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time. Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel.

"About the size of."

Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. Obviously required a lot of rinsing. Color is good contrast to the Beta. At least any visible to the naked eye. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand.

"Held its color when wet."

I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust.

Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface.

"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.

"Nicely polished."

At this point I'm Trying to wash pebbles. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. Bigger than normal aquarium gravel, nice colors, good quality, no smell. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. Colors are exactly as shown on the screen- at least on my monitor. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it.

"It's just what I wanted."

This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. This is the real deal mother earth approx. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light.
