Hey can I use this in addition to gravel ? Or is this product meant to be used alone as the gravel ?
Answer by ChewyAug 13, 2021
Aqueon PURE Betta Beads are intended for use as aquarium gravel.

You’re supposed to replace every month with a new pack of beads?
Answer by ChewyMay 25, 2022
It is recommended to replace the beads monthly and remove uneaten food for optimal results. If betta beads shrink prematurely, this is a quick indicator that the water hardness is not optimal for your betta. We recommend changing the water with soft (deionized or specially filtered) betta waters.

Can this be used in a betta tank that is also home to a catfish?
Answer by ChewyAug 23, 2021
PURE Betta Beads are safe for all fish.

Is this safe to use in a tank that has a Pleco?
Answer by ChewyJul 26, 2021
If this tank has a filter, the Betta Beads are best for an unfiltered environment.

Shrink in hard water

These do exactly what they say they are designed to do and I think they’re great. I have one tank and one fish bowl. I use these in the unfiltered bowl. They shrink in hard water which is helpful because it’s basically an indicator that a water change is due. So if you use them for their intended purpose, they truly do exactly what they say they do. My betta loves playing in his ball pit.

Fish plays in them like a ball pit!

These disappear a little once they’re installed in the tank, but my fish loves playing in them like a ball pit! They occasionally make their way up to the filter intake but a little joggle of the filter and they fall off. They give a nice additional interest to the tank, another layer. I like them. The fact the fish can move them easily makes it possible for him, even though he’s a top feeder, to get a second chance at food that may have settled to the bottom that stones or rocks would be too heavy for him to move -for the food wafts up and he goes after it again! (I’m learning how much food is enough so that this happens less though.)

Meh, nobody was impressed

I got these for my 5 gallon betta tank, and within days the majority of them shrunk to nothing. They're not easy to work with doing water changes at all, and honestly weren't even that "pretty" looking in the tank. Save your money.

awesome and effective

Watching my betta laying on them to sleep is so cute, he also bounces in and out of them and plays with them! It's great, kept my tank cleaner than it would with gravel! Love it!
