"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.

"Great quality."

The 50 pound bag was jus barely enough for my 55 gallon tank! It looks great and didn't change anything about the water. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish. I planned on spending 24-48 hours removing all the dust in washes and soaks. This is not the colored synthetic aquarium medium.

Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. At least any visible to the naked eye. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white.

"Nice big bag of gravel."

I didn't even need the water clarifier, and I found it in the bag. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium. I have a 90 gallon aquarium with a footprint of 18 by 48 inches. Really like the coloring of them as well. At least any visible to the naked eye. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks.

"Hence the 4 stars."

I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. This is the real deal mother earth approx. I rinsed it about 3-4 times and felt satisfied it was good. The smooth and small pebbles are great for people keeping corycats. All n all, very happy with the purchase.

"Gravel was as advertised."

There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. Really like the coloring of them as well. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough.

"Happy gardening!"

Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. I WOULD recommend buying this item! Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. Obviously required a lot of rinsing. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use.

"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.

Worldwide Imports 29571 First Impressions

"No complaints."

I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. Secondly the gravels colour looks enhanced under a bright led light. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though. It was easy to clean and looks great in my bamboo glass vases! I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is 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.

The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. Fast delivery and item true to description. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank.
