Gravel is an important part to maintaining a healthy aquarium. Natural aggregate elements not only beautify your aquarium but will provide a surface of growth for beneficial bacteria. Beneficial bacteria growth is important as it aids in converting fish waste to non-toxic levels. Natural aggregates contain no polish or color finishes. Rinsing gravel to remove excess dust and dirt is recommended before use.
Not happy at all. I ordered the bigger stones and recived the small pebbles. 1 bag was busted open. Not a happy camper at all.
These are more like small rocks instead of gravel.

If you get these for your 55 gal. tank, you need at least 3 bags, more if your tank is larger. I use an under gravel filter and 2 HOB powered filters. They look good in the tank...
Not Black, but pretty

They aren’t black, but rather a darker grey. Not issues with broken ones. We did wash before adding to the tank. We like the look!
Nice Rocks, Bad Packaging
on Jan 28, 2021
I really like these rocks they were exactly what I was looking for. However, while washing off the excess dust I got a few cuts. There was a rather large piece of glass I hadn't seen in the hiding in between the rocks. I was surprised. I wished they took more care in assuring such harmful substances don't make it to their final product. The rocks themselves are very nice.
Nice, but they’re not black

These rocks are nice and smooth, what I was looking for to be kinder to my cory cats’ barbels, but the rocks are definitely not even close to black, so I just can’t give them five stars. The stones are larger than your average aquarium gravel, which is kind of a neat aesthetic, so that’s cool. I just really really wish they were darker. The photo was taken under my LED tank light on its lowest setting.
Be Prepared to Wash

They say washed, but they were covered in dust and so were all the items in the box. Washed these in small batches in a cullender in the sink and found pieces of glass and wood mixed in! They look good now that I've cleaned them all, but I'm lucky I didn't get cut - and think what may have happened if I put my fish in without sorting them first!

Maybe I just got a bad batch... my pebbles are grey, not black. And they are rather dull, not at all shiny like the picture shows. Disappointed.

I chose this product because I had to find a smoother floor base for my betta fish. He loves the pebbles and commonly nests on them. Not to mention they are stylish and have a great price tag!
Perfect for My Project

I actually bought these pebbles to put in the bottom of a terrarium I got for Christmas. They were perfect - very evenly sized, clean, and a nice color. I will purchase again when I do another terrarium.
Decent Dark Gravel

I bought this gravel to put in an aquascape with live plants and shrimp. It's not as shiny as the photo suggests, but it still looks good. Be sure to give it a good rinse before putting it into your tank. This container is a small two gallon jar and this gravel was just enough to fill the bottom and to hold the plants. Great buy for the price.
