Rather large gravel

I like the Zen Garden gravel, but it is rather large, compared to most other aquarium gravel. A lot of aquarium gravel is too fine for use with under gravel filters. Fine gravel substrate will sift through, and even clog up the slots in the filter plates. If you have big fish, especially those that move the gravel around, the Zen Garden will work just fine. I like the CaribSea Gemstone Creek a little more. It is slightly smaller than the Zen and is suitable for most aquariums, with or without under gravel filters. All aquarium substrate is dirty and should be washed thoroughly before placing it in your tank.

exactly what I wanted, work in progress!

I'm putting together my new 10 gallon betta tank. I looked at alot of different gravel, sand and other pebble types here on Chewy and in different stores and none of it appealed to me. I was feeling a little defeated until I found this. I wanted a very natural look but smooth stones. nothing rough and sharp. and with this, this is what I got. and my tank is on its way to becoming the vision I have in my head. I still have things I ordered from Chewy that haven't gotten to me yet and things I need to get from here and there. more plants and hidey things. so it's still a work in progress. I'm in no rush.

Natural; but not worth the hassle.

Purchased this instead of other gravels offered as I wanted to try a more natural product without an acrylic/clear coating like other brands offer. The natural sediments left on the gravel (even though it’s apparently pre-rinsed) congealed into a foul-smelling sludge both on the bottom of the tank and covered the entirety of the HOB filter (for which I am certain is from the gravel and not any previous aquarium issues). Honestly, I would recommend just going with buying an acrylic coated gravel instead unless you have the patience to deal with the consequences. I wish I had photographic evidence of the havoc it wreaked on my HOB but sadly I scrubbed my filter shortly before deciding to write this.

Love them, nice variety

Rinse/soak thoroughly before use, they are quite dirty, don't want that in your tank.
