Spectrastone 10701 First Impressions

This gravel really pops!

All substraight needs to be thoroughly rinsed before use. Aside from the size, the appearance of this gravel is what stands out the most. I rinsed it before I put it in the tank. I envisioned the bag being bigger since I ordered a 50lbs. They served their purpose, but had to be the dirtiest rocks I have ordered. My Vallisneria and amazon swords grow just fine in this substrate. I decided on this particular brand of gravel because of Amazon's add-on program.

Spectrastone 10701 Final Thoughts

Bright color.

I'll definitely use this gravel again the next time I start a new tank. Like everyone else says wash it before putting it in your tank. One bag was open and had emptied into the box. The color mixture with the darker colors in it does that very well. Unlike most, I didn't purchase this gravel for its ability to glow. The 50 pound bag was jus barely enough for my 55 gallon tank! Plenty of rock for my 5 gal aquarium.
