"The color is beautiful."

I half rinse it and put it in my tank. Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project. Purchased 9 bags of this for a new 180 gallon aquarium. Just be patient and realize that it's going to take a while to rinse it. The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it.

Sera 3375 Final Thoughts

"I split the 15."

It will take you a while to properly clean. The color mixture with the darker colors in it does that very well. Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. 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 wash it in small batches in a five gallon bucket before putting it in the tank. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta.

"Be careful!"

I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! It's a gemstone quality gravel, not the topfin crap from petsmart. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time. Don't use any soaps or anything else. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered.

"Happy gardening!"

It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. It's my new, absolute favorite substrate. Overall I am happy with the gravel. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. Arrived in 8 sealed plastic bags inside one Priority box. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect.

"Gorgeous, quality gravel."

I would buy again if the price didn't double from last time. They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. Just do a proper rinse, and you will be fine. Everyone ask where did i get that color. Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. I purchased to put into a dry river rock.

"I love this stuff."

I absolutely love how the rocks glow in my tank! It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. This gravel works extremely well for planted tanks and for smaller fish species. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta. I half rinse it and put it in my tank.

"Would purchase again."

I baught a 5 gallon tank and i had to buy 2 packs. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice. Wonderful mixture of color with the black stone. Needs more plants but it makes the colors of the fish and other decor really pop.

"With normal tap water."

It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. I used these to put on top of soil if my pot plants. I filled with filter water ad let sit for a day before relocate fish.

SACKORANGE Final Thoughts

"I haven't used this yet."

I'd recommend but just be wary of debris. I actually used this on the top of my potted plants to keep gnats away. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough.

Lovely colors and everything i was looking for!

"Wet vs dry."

Water became with film like on top and lots of little bubbles on every surface. I found it easier to do a medium sized bowl at a time. I think the pink makes my aquarium stand out and gives it a cute little look. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. It comes in a variety of colors, but I prefer the classic white. I've been using that for a few months now with my betta.

"Beautiful and natural."

But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. Very random shapes and colors that blend well. But didnt return it as it still looked cool with few coloured pebbles scattered.

"Ideal for my tank."

I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. Stir periodically and then your good to go! Works great in my daughter aquarium. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. It really makes the tank look sharp and I believe the goldfish likes it, too. One bag was open and had emptied into the box.
