Mimosa Final Thoughts

"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.

"Great aquarium gravel!"

All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems. It's my new, absolute favorite substrate. I used this for a small aquarium with 2 goldfish and it worked great! At least any visible to the naked eye. 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.

Vellenty Products Final Thoughts

"Nice rocks for my BioOrb."

There's a nice mix of color and gives my little nano tanks a nice earthy feel. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium. Minimal clouding gone within 12 hours. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. Love the vibrant neon colors mixed in with the black gravel. They are rocks, what more do you need. I half rinse it and put it in my tank.

"Love the look."

I recommend doing it in smaller portions. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. They're like large pebbles that are the size of your pinky-nail. I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. Will definitely purchase again when needed. Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. I use a hybrid of the Walstad Method, and this stuff is perfect.

"Great aquarium gravel!"

Out of the bag there is an amazing amount of dust. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. The gravel size is exactly as described in the product description- 2 to 4mm. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. Stir periodically and then your good to go! We bought this for a glo fish tank.

Mimosa Final Thoughts

"Nice product."

Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. So if you are looking for bigger size, this is not it. I was scared to buy it after the reviews I read about it killing their fish. These colors combine to give an overall color of light brown. It has lovely colors and I will be using ONLY this gravel in the future. For reference, my tank is a 20 gallon tall tank. Bigger than normal aquarium gravel, nice colors, good quality, no smell.

"Easy to clean."

There is some sand and dirt mixed in. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. Snails and fish dont seem to mind the switch from sand. Yeah this stuff has to come prerinsed. I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. I used this for a path in a 22 gallon aquarium.

"Ideal for my tank."

Worked great for my succulent gardens. I recommend doing it in smaller portions. I really love this natural gravel, really makes my 20g High look natural! Don't even hesitate on purchasing this stuff. Although I had to rinse it about 5 times to fully get ALL of the dust out. Only issue is that it did have a hole in the bag but nothing too horrible. The glow is pretty minimal but it still looks nice.

"Love the look."

So far, really happy with how it looks in my small tank. The texture is smooth so cories and burrowing fish will not hurt themselves. Works great in my daughter aquarium. I did rinse it off before putting it in the aquarium. I am disappointed that there seems to be nothing special about this gravel. I bought two bags for my 55 gallon. I included a picture which doesn't do the product justice.

"This gravel really pops!"

It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. The rock arrived quickly and several days before projected. It gives a very natural riverbed look to the aquarium. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. They are rocks, what more do you need. I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. This was because of my own preconceived notions and not that of the sellers though.

Perfect for the corydoras, pleasing to the eye. I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program. All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. Using these stones for growing bulbs for church project. Wash gravel well before use, and its pretty good. I wished I would have bought a few more so It would be deeper in my tank.

"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.

The rocks are REALLY dirty, and contain random debris. The little package of clarifier included is not nearly enough. I also found a DEAD spider in the gravel! Not sure why there is so much bad feedback for this. I just wanted to post a picture so you can see how much comes in a pack. Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium.

Removed pebbles and refilled for the 3rd time. Don't even waste your time adding it to your tank. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and would suggest this product to others.

The gravel adds amazing color and the fish and snails seem to like it. I opened the bag, dumped it in a bowl and filled it with water. Had to move fish out after it nearly died. It smells like chlorine and epoxy glue. Stir periodically and then your good to go! At least any visible to the naked eye. This is perfect for a 2 gallon tank that also has some acrylic gems.
