"And a great price."

I bought a few bags of this and it's nice. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. Originally I bought the black with colored stones for my 5 gallon tank. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon.

"So it really is natural."

Everyone ask where did i get that color. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank.

"Just my thoughts."

So will just see if color stays-God willing! There is some sand and dirt mixed in. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank.

"I'm so glad I found this."

There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time.

"Would purchase again."

Some of the bad feedback says it clouds the water. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. There is some sand and dirt mixed in. At least any visible to the naked eye. I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. A little bigger than what I wanted but I still used it.

"Excellent purchase."

I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. We bought this for a glo fish tank. I've ordered their midnight pearl color and it is beautiful too. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. Wouldn't have any other substrate for my axolotl.

"Great aquarium gravel!"

There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. We bought this for a glo fish tank. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough.

"These are perfect."

Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel! This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. Had to move fish out after it nearly died.

"I love it."

This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. This was the cheapest DIY project with a big wow factor. This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium. I do not own glofish nor a glofish tank. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered.

"Just as described."

They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. Really like the coloring of them as well. It worked really well and still allowed new stems to pop through.

"I haven't used this yet."

Don't own a blacklight so can't tell if it glows or not. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. Really just rinsed a little and ready to go. I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. Don't use any soaps or anything else.

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.

"Ideal for my tank."

I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would suggest this product to others. I really love this natural gravel, really makes my 20g High look natural! I recommend doing it in smaller portions. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time.

"These rocks are perfect!"

This is the real deal mother earth approx. It will take you a while to properly clean. It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris.

"Worked out great for me."

Worked great for my succulent gardens. Fast delivery and item true to description. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. I'm accenting with multicolored glass rocks to accent. Color is good contrast to the Beta. 5 inches of gravel, so you could use more or less depending on tank size. I wash it in small batches in a five gallon bucket before putting it in the tank.

"There is none."

I WOULD recommend buying this item! The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. I half rinse it and put it in my tank. This is my favorite gravel I've bought from Amazon. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks.

"A few minutes."

Very random shapes and colors that blend well. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look.
