Got 5 bags of the Marine Blue to freshen up my 30+ year old gravel. Don't believe the horror reviews that are on here. It didn't stain my rinse bucket or my hands or turn my tank blue. My fish are doing fine and like the new color. Sure it takes several rinsing's before your rinse water will run clear. Big Deal. This product has been around for a very long time and for a reason. If you want to add color to your tank, get this. Also no one can touch the price CHEWY gets for it.
Before I put it in my tank I washed it and expected it to be super dusty and it wasn’t at all!! My betta looks amazing with this gravel! Definitely recommend it. This filled up my 5 gallon perfectly!
Thank you for the gravel it came in great use I really appreciate it you do a wonderful job thanks again
Yep, I had to throw it away. I bought the marine blue color and I rinsed it 3 times and even let it soak for hours and the color still bled. My hands were blue! There was no way I was going to trust putting it in my tank. I wishI had read reviews before I ordered it.
Cannot recommend. I've been rinsing and soaking the 20 pounds for over a week, and the rinsate is still blue. My hands are blue afterward. I'm wary.
The purple passion is a nice dark purple as shown. Would definitely buy again.
The 9 5lb bags of aquarium gravel was packed ON TOP of the filter!!! And one bag of gravel had a hole in it! Have they no common sense???!!!
It looks great! Be sure to rinse thoroughly. There is lots of excess dye and small pieces that float and get into the filter or the fish confuse for food.
I am no aquatic expert whatsoever, but the dye they used to color these rocks seems a bit unsafe. We chose the red and by the end of day 1, the water was super cloudy and starting to turn red. We had to change the tank water every other day until I was able to get new rocks and got them out of there permanently. Will not try color again!
This sand like gravel BLEEDS so much I had to wash for a good hour, stained my hands and the bucket. Always wash until water runs clear!! It does take a while but once the water is clear I’ve had no issues with the gravel bleeding inside the tank and I can grab it without it staining my fingers so if your up for a good long gravel soak and wash I say buy this one! Works well in both my tanks with no bleeding or staining issues. My only issue is when I clean the gravel it’s so sand like a little bit tends to suck through the vacuum siphon.
