I purchased this for a 20 gallon planted community tank. I'm relatively new to all this, but have done a lot of research. This substrate seems to be very good quality and working well for my purpose. Not to mention it looks nice. It does take some time to clean and even after thoroughly cleaning, the water was a tad cloudy for the first maybe 2 days. But it did clear up nicely. Now, it's only been about a week and a half but the tank seems to be thriving and water quality has been perfect.
I wanted something to brighten up my fishtank which has a black background and black substrate. This looks beautiful and gives the tank a very natural look. The small gravel works well for my nano fish as well.
Absolutely gorgeous. I can't find gravel here like the sand I grew up on the beaches in Minnesota. Here it's all sugar sand or saltwater look. I love this. Was very clean also. Am buying more.
I am a big fan of on time delivery for my orders. That being said i gave 4 stars because of the missed delivery date but to be honest no fish was harmed because of it. The price was better than every other seller that i checked online and i checked many! The discription was accurate the size perfect for the next aquascaping idea.
Stones to small for frogs to see food. They have poor eyesight can't find the food
Exactly what I was hoping for. Coarser than sand, but finer (about half the size) of average gravel. Pretty clean, didn't rinse it and no problems.
Very attractive and easy to clean just a little pricey.
I love this stuff. I have several nano tanks with this substrate, my Bettas love it.. It is smaller sized pieces. Nice natural color variation. It reflects the light in the aquarium, as opposed to a black or dark colored substrate, that absorb the light.
Great substrate for bottom dwellers. I needed to switch to a finer substrate when I got Corydoras, but I didn't want traditional sand because of how difficult it is to vacuum and how it can stir up easily and clog filters. After searching around I was excited to find this type of sand. It's sort of a cross between gravel and sand, and very smooth. It doesn't cloud up, is easy to vacuum, easy to grow plants in and my Corys and Pleco love it! The natural colors are beautiful in any aquascape.
I was concerned that the pieces were too small when I first received it, thought it would be difficult to deal with (like sand) but it's the opposite. This is the best gravel I've ever used. I have an algea problem and usually by week 2 my gravel is covered in it but it wasn't. Not sure why but I'll take it! Also thought it would clump up when I put it in but it fell into place beautifully and evenly. Even when I cleaned it up it was extremely easy to move around and even out. Also it just looks beautiful! I highly recommend this.
