I've gotten a lot of bags of this stuff. The dark purple color is beautiful, and impossible for me to find elsewhere at any reasonable cost. After months of use, all of it still looks great. Like all color-coated gravel, you will need to rinse this stuff very thoroughly; I smoosh and turn it against the bottom of a colander inside a mixing bowl under warm running water, which does a great job of removing any flakes of coating and filtering out pieces that are too small.
Coating Came Off--Turned Water Cloudy

Initially pleased with this gravel until woke up to a cloudy tank with numerous now white pebbles and what appeared to be fibers throughout the tank. I have had fresh and saltwater aquariums for over 50 years and this is the first time I have experience this. Thankfully problem appeared before fish were added to tank.
Black paint quickly came off rocks

We bought 10 5lb bags of this stone. We wanted all stones in our 55 gallon tank to be black. Unfortunately after about 3 weeks many of the stones are showing their 'true colors' already. Most seem to be white, some are yellow or orange. Disappointing.
Does the job!

Purchased this item in black...also the neon colors...and it works just great in my Glo Tank. Very vivid under the Glo light....however, being so small...it's hard to clean...getting all the waste out...all-in-all...it's a great looking product!
Chewy nailed it again!

Big box stores are not carrying the selection of colors that were offered with Chewy. I just needed a small bag to spread around for some pop of color. I washed them off and usually with other brands, the water will turn that color of rock. This brand didn’t. Great product!!

Maybe a bit less then I was expecting because it says 5 lbs, but I thought that they were good, and looked nice in my tank. Just be sure to rinse them!
LOTS of dye
on Aug 12, 2018
I'm not new to aquariums. I've kept everything from 2-gallon betta tanks to a 75-gallon freshwater tank. I bought the marine blue to use in a newly acquired 35-gallon hex tank. I've opened 1 bag and started the rinsing process. I was stunned at the amount of blue dye coming off of them. I'm not sure the rocks will still be blue by the time I finish rinsing them but I can't have dye fowling the tank. Depending on how long it takes to get this first bag rinsed, I may cut my losses and try a different brand.

Definitely the color that I expected my tank looks beautiful with the colors I got! Happy with my purchase.
color didn't look like picture

I don't like it. It's thirty and most is sand. It's not pebble. And the color doesn't look like picture.

I didn't give it 5 stars because the color isn't quite as dark as we wanted and there was a TON of small stones that ended up in the trash. with all the bags we bought we threw away at least one full bag of small stones, probably more.
