Seachem 3725 First Impressions

I have no complaints.

The color looks beautiful and natural in the tank. It does need a good washing, and I used a 5 gallon bucket method. The color of the gravel makes the blue in my Tetra's and Gourami's pop. Lovely colors and everything i was looking for! I have blue lights and white lights in my tanks. I have bought 2 bags of this gravel. They are rocks, what more do you need.

Seachem 3725 Final Thoughts

Held its color when wet.

I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. If you have to bury tank decor that doesn't have suction cups then you need more. It will take you a while to properly clean. For smaller plants, these rocks are a little on the big side. But the gravel itself is nice quality and adds interest to tanks. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. For my purpose, they work perfectly, for an aquarium, they might need a quick rinse.

  • Seachem 3725 Features & Specs
  • GRAVEL: Seachem Flourite Black is a specially fracted stable porous clay gravel for the natural planted aquarium. Its appearance is best suited to planted aquaria, but may be used in any freshwater aquarium environment.
  • AQUARIUM BED: Gravel modifiers such as laterite are not necessary when using Seachem Flourite Black as this product is most effective when used alone as an integral substrate bed, but it may be mixed with other gravels.
  • SET-UP: When adding water to the aquarium, fill slowly to avoid disturbing Flourite Black substrate bed. Place a bowl in the aquarium and add water directly to the bowl, allowing water to overflow softly on to the gravel bed. Initial cloudiness is normal, but to remove this simply use mechanical filtration
  • COMPATIBLE: Flourite Black substrates will work fine with an under gravel filter and will not soften or decompose to an unsuitable state within your tank.Flourite substrates will work fine with an UGF
  • SAFETY: Seachem Flourite Black is not chemically coated or treated, thus does not alter the pH of the water. Flourite Black is beneficial for the life of the aquarium and need not be replaced.
  • Manufacture: Seachem Laboratories, Inc.
