"6 beautiful polish rocks."

I am using them in a shallow pan with water to let bees drink. They're big enough one package goes a long way. 500 marbles isn't as big a bag as you think, but they're all there. I couldn't find them in stores any longer so had to order them online. I use them in a vase to help with arrangements. They look good and should serve their purpose well. However, two packages have worked quite well.

"They are glass."

They look beautiful, glistening in the sunlight, too. Very pretty stones for the aquarium. These little shells were perfect for my Fairy garden. Was hugely sceptical about these but they actually really help keep the tank clean. The color was very true to color, also comes with a LOT of marbles too. These little shells were perfect for my Fairy garden. I use them for game pieces, they are perfect.

"They are glass."

There has been no adverse effects from the rocks. One thing I can say is 200 pieces is only good for a 5 gallon tank. The price is a bit shocking at first, but the rocks are nice. 500 marbles isn't as big a bag as you think, but they're all there. Worked well for what I needed them for. 2 tanks have a betta or corydora catfish so I needed smooth rocks for their safety. Light casts through them well and they are attractive.

Penn-Plax Final Thoughts

"Works well."

Nice and shiny giving that always wet look. So, very pretty, glow nicely at night and add a pop of color during the day. I ordered two packets and counted them one by one. Great quality, though smaller than I thought. I just rinsed them with hot, then cold water, and put them in the tank. These gems are so dainty and sparkly! Described as aquarium stones but I used them to decorate my plant pot.

"5 retreat tank."

The price is a bit shocking at first, but the rocks are nice. Attached a couple of Petite Anubias I purchased from Petco and the tank is set. I plopped one in with the shrimps and they were all over it like a tramp on chips. Definitely not the case with these. Comes with a good amount for the cost. These would look pretty in a vase with some artificial flowers. Good for the tank with the added bonus of looking good too!

"They are verry nice."

Used in a terrarium with a bonsai tree. They look nice mixed with light brown sand. These would look pretty in a vase with some artificial flowers. I ordered these for my daughter's 100th school day project. Comes with a good amount for the cost. Used for centerpieces at my wedding. Nice very smooth smaller rocks good for a 10 gallon Betta tank.

"This is really neat."

I have purchased a few packs and every pack is different. Really pleased with everything related to the item! Great quality, though smaller than I thought. The sizes were about 3 inches diameter for most stones, and one small one thrown in. They look good and should serve their purpose well. My goldfish began to eat the sandy gravel so I purchased this gravel. All arrived clean and in good condition.

"5 retreat tank."

I've read some other reviews where some other brand glow rocks hardly glowed. I have included two photos of the ones I received. I've read some other reviews where some other brand glow rocks hardly glowed. There isn't much to say, other than this worked for its purpose. I used mine to start filling a glass jar that used to hold coins. Noticeable improvement in the clarity of the water. I painted targets with large used pizza boxes and they were used with the marbles.

"They look great."

With the bee population going down so much, this is one way I can help. Comes with a good amount for the cost. To be honest I am debating ordering a third package. Used in a terrarium with a bonsai tree. 500 marbles isn't as big a bag as you think, but they're all there. There has been no adverse effects from the rocks. And the different color rocks adds a pretty flare during the day.

They look so beautiful in my 5 gallon tank. No glass pieces like broken marbles. I bought these to put in a bird bath, so that honeybees would not drown. I used then in a vase with flowers.

"5 and 23 gallon ones."

They are the perfect size for my Betta tanks. They're big enough to hold stems in place and allow water to fit between them. 2 tanks have a betta or corydora catfish so I needed smooth rocks for their safety. I just rinsed them with hot, then cold water, and put them in the tank. However, two packages have worked quite well. They glow pretty bright after a full day under a UV lamp. Also, they have been in my tank for about 5 weeks now.

"Aqua glass beads."

I bought these rocks for my flower pots that I put out in summer. She wanted to bring a jar of 100 marbles to school to celebrate the 100th day. Only negative is the quantity for the price. I am currently using three and have some left over for another tank. Three teenagers were coming to visit and I purchased sling shots for each of them. I didn't want round marbles in my tank, I had wanted the flat kind. The marbles are perfect for floral arrangements in glass vases.

"It was a big hit!"

They look beautiful, glistening in the sunlight, too. Only negative is the quantity for the price. Its a small bag of rocks, cant really mess that order up. Great variety in color and size, these are going into my goldfish tank. Just an FYI, the white sea glass does not stay white, but still looks lovely! We use them to decorate a gravel garden path until the birds steal them all. I plopped one in with the shrimps and they were all over it like a tramp on chips.

"No broken ones."

They are nice rocks, nothing out of ordinary but nice rocks. These would look pretty in a vase with some artificial flowers. Out of the water they will be much lighter than their colors immersed. For a sample compare the advert photo and the darker photo from the reviews. For a sample compare the advert photo and the darker photo from the reviews. A quality purchase sincerely encouraged.

"Work fine pavkeged good."

Natural-looking and don't seem to affect tank parameters. Oh well, guess I should have ordered more! The ad said how many per bag, but I was still expecting it to be larger. My goldfish began to eat the sandy gravel so I purchased this gravel. I read the other reviews about not 100 pieces. I like that you can be creative with these and build your own miniature structures. They were clear and seemed identical.

"It was a big hit!"

These are lovely clear glass marbles and lots of them. We use them to decorate a gravel garden path until the birds steal them all. Great for my betta because he cannot snag his fins on them. I ordered two packets and counted them one by one. Reviews say not to clean them when they get dirty so I won't. There has been no adverse effects from the rocks. I plopped one in with the shrimps and they were all over it like a tramp on chips.
