"The kiddos LOVE these!"

The price is a bit shocking at first, but the rocks are nice. She wanted to bring a jar of 100 marbles to school to celebrate the 100th day. Noticeable improvement in the clarity of the water. So, very pretty, glow nicely at night and add a pop of color during the day. They looked so good I bought more for other bathrooms. These marbles are as good as marbles can be. I like that you can be creative with these and build your own miniature structures.

Hydor KI1401 Final Thoughts

"Very cute!"

I couldn't find them in stores any longer so had to order them online. I didn't want round marbles in my tank, I had wanted the flat kind. I ordered these for my daughter's 100th school day project. I ordered two of these for my 75 gallon tank. I am using them in a shallow pan with water to let bees drink. They are nice rocks, nothing out of ordinary but nice rocks. I plopped one in with the shrimps and they were all over it like a tramp on chips.

"Very good sized stones."

Just what I wanted, plain blue marbles! I just rinsed them with hot, then cold water, and put them in the tank. The glass isn't cloudy, the sizes are uniform and you get the weight described. Only negative is the quantity for the price. Light casts through them well and they are attractive. I'm using them in a tank with black sand and green plants and they look very nice. Three teenagers were coming to visit and I purchased sling shots for each of them.

"White, green and Red."

She wanted to bring a jar of 100 marbles to school to celebrate the 100th day. When the marbles arrived, the bag definitely was small. However, two packages have worked quite well. Natural-looking and don't seem to affect tank parameters. They looked so good I bought more for other bathrooms. I like that you can be creative with these and build your own miniature structures. Also a good price for jasper stones.

"Looks great."

To be honest I am debating ordering a third package. But I feel that's only if your planning to use them outside. I plopped one in with the shrimps and they were all over it like a tramp on chips. Out of the water they will be much lighter than their colors immersed. They look so beautiful in my 5 gallon tank. It would take ten bags or 1,000 marbles to fill the½ gallon jug¾ of the way. The marbles are perfect for floral arrangements in glass vases.

"Well worth the money."

Oh well, guess I should have ordered more! Large, white stones with a smooth polished surface. Very pretty stones for the aquarium. Excellent product and super fast shipping! To be honest I am debating ordering a third package. Natural-looking and don't seem to affect tank parameters. I just rinsed them well before putting in my new tank.

SunGrow First Impressions

"Aqua glass beads."

My little guy loved these they are the perfect size for his little tank. I've read some other reviews where some other brand glow rocks hardly glowed. Large, white stones with a smooth polished surface. Otherwise works and looks wonderful. Awesome love the price and the color. I placed them in the sun and natural light and they glow bright and beautiful. I used them to display a crystal vase.

  • SunGrow Glowing Aquarium Pebbles, 0.8-1.2 Inches, Resin Stones with Blue Photoluminescent Pigment, Natural Glow in The Dark Decorations for Fish Bowls, Reptile Tanks and More, 200 Pieces
  • ✔ LUMINESCENT UNDERWATER HABITAT DECOR --- Scuba divers, castles and plastic plants are all commonly used decorations in fish tanks and aquariums. But what if you want something a little extra special in your underwater habitat? The luminescent glow-in-the-dark SunGrow aquarium pebbles are the perfect decor to add a truly unique and enchanting effect.
  • ✔ SAVE ON YOUR UTILITY BILL WITH GLOW IN THE DARK PEBBLES --- Because the SunGrow Blue Resin Pebbles do not require any electricity or power supply to light up and glow, they work wonderful as indoor and/or outdoor decor. The fluorescent landscaping stones create a charming and beautiful atmosphere in your living room, garden, backyard or pool area.
  • ✔ GLOWING EFFECT TO LAST OVER 13 YEARS --- Each one of the decorative resin pebbles is infused with a photoluminescent pigment that naturally glows a vibrant blue. These amazing light storage stones absorb light rays such as sunshine, then emits the stored light into the darkness. Reusable and long lasting, the SunGrow glowing stones have a lifespan of approximately 15 years.
  • ✔ EXOTIC ADDITION TO CREATIVE ARTWORK --- Along with being an intriguing addition to decorative fish tanks, turtle tanks and outdoor koi ponds, the blue resin stones are also quite stunning when used in original artwork. A traditional bonding material like glue can be placed directly onto the flat side of the stones so they can easily be added to fabric, cloth or canvas.
  • ✔ LIGHTWEIGHT, PET-SAFE MATERIALS --- Unlike rocks and stones from nature, the glowing aquarium pebbles are made of a durable, very lightweight resin material. The materials used to create the blue glow stones are high quality, non-toxic and friendly to pets, people and the environment.
  • The stones traveled to you in a dark, enclosed area and will need at least an hour under bright light (such as a lamp or direct sunlight) to absorb enough light energy to glow.
  • The light storage stones produce a natural glowing effect and are not to be compared to an electric light source.

"And I'm glad I did!"

They are the perfect size for my Betta tanks. To be honest I am debating ordering a third package. This is a great way to'class up' your fish tank. Awesome love the price and the color. I'm gonna order a couple more bags of these just because I know they work. I'm using them in a tank with black sand and green plants and they look very nice. I will be buying a second bag for my other tank.

"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.

"Overall, a good purchase."

Large, white stones with a smooth polished surface. Neighbor has bees, and they come and drink and drown. The price is a bit shocking at first, but the rocks are nice. Oh well, guess I should have ordered more! The ad said how many per bag, but I was still expecting it to be larger. I bought these rocks for my flower pots that I put out in summer.

"Bought the marbles."

I ordered two packets and counted them one by one. Beautiful, minimalist decoration for an aquarium. Great for my betta because he cannot snag his fins on them. Received marble very fast, great marbles. 2 tanks have a betta or corydora catfish so I needed smooth rocks for their safety. Great for my betta because he cannot snag his fins on them. The bag they were in protected every single glass drop inside.

"Super saturated color."

She wanted to bring a jar of 100 marbles to school to celebrate the 100th day. I just rinsed them with hot, then cold water, and put them in the tank. I recieved 8 though two were smaller than the rest. Natural-looking and don't seem to affect tank parameters. Otherwise works and looks wonderful. But that is not a flaw with the product, as the marbles are very nice. They looked so good I bought more for other bathrooms.

"Good size."

Awesome love the price and the color. They were exceptional however they were to small for what we needed! Otherwise works and looks wonderful. So, very pretty, glow nicely at night and add a pop of color during the day. May sound strange but I do happen to have a bee hive in a tree in my back yard. One thing I can say is 200 pieces is only good for a 5 gallon tank. They look beautiful, glistening in the sunlight, too.

"Colors are as I expected."

There isn't much to say, other than this worked for its purpose. Attached a couple of Petite Anubias I purchased from Petco and the tank is set. Love the size and how pretty they are. It would take ten bags or 1,000 marbles to fill the½ gallon jug¾ of the way. They are nice rocks, nothing out of ordinary but nice rocks.

KISEER Final Thoughts

"Nice product."

One thing I can say is 200 pieces is only good for a 5 gallon tank. And the different color rocks adds a pretty flare during the day. I highly doubted there were actually 100 marbles in the bag. I painted targets with large used pizza boxes and they were used with the marbles. I use them in a vase to help with arrangements. However, two packages have worked quite well. Reviews say not to clean them when they get dirty so I won't.

"Exactly as pictured."

I painted targets with large used pizza boxes and they were used with the marbles. Out of the water they will be much lighter than their colors immersed. Nice and shiny giving that always wet look. The water is very clean and therefore less maintenance required. For a sample compare the advert photo and the darker photo from the reviews. We put them in our aquaponics tank and they are great. I'm using them in a tank with black sand and green plants and they look very nice.
