These are actual stones that don't dissolve like Wonder Shells but they do a similar job. I suspect they are something like sandstone since they have a powdery substance before you soak them per the instructions. Obviously they look more natural than Wonder Shells but I don't think they're as effective if you compare effectiveness per weight. I had more success with using these in my larger livebearer 20 gallon tank than my 5 gallon shrimp tank and I'm assuming it has to do with the problem I mentioned before. I'm not going to repurchase but instead try using seiryu stones to raise pH, which are cheaper per weight while doing the same thing.
When I put the rocks in my tank, my shrimp got livelier in just a few minutes. The rocks also made the water clearer, getting rid of the yellowish tint from the tank's driftwood. After 12 hours, my all-red cherry shrimp, especially the males, turned a much brighter red. Before, they looked kind of pink and brown, but now they're a vibrant red. I'm really happy with how well this product worked.
They are pretty and maybe they add something to the water but my shrimp aren't really using them at all so I feel kinda a waste of money.
I only have 3 fresh water snails, so I didn’t expect much, but they look very pretty in my tank, and they’re definitely good for the PH in my tank ( higher for me personally ) so works out !!
Since putting these in the tank I do see many going to the different rock surfaces - not congregating in mass or anything but they do seem to like these rocks. I'm going to buy some more.
My shrimp are happier with this product now they can shed.
I had three cherry shrimp. One had passed after a week and I was worried about the others. All I have is a one gallon tank. I was worried they would over mineralize my shrimp so I just put one in the tank. They are doing amazing! It’s the small tiny rock to the right, and my shrimp Bray is walking around to the left. It’s so small but it does so well! My shrimp that weren’t doing very good because they weren’t getting the minerals they needed are now very active as is my Nerite snail that hardly ever moved and is now moving around the tank. the only thing I hate that has nothing to do with the mineral rocks is that Chewy told me I would get them by November 3rd if I ordered them sunday and they didn’t come in until November 5th and i was afraid my shrimps would die before then.
These did the trick. Tried Miracle shells or whatever, but they didn't help.
Great product and pleased with the quality. My sis got these mineral balls for my cherry shrimp. It used to roam all over my tank but now it’s always somewhere close to the mineral rocks. Now, I am thinking to get these myself for my fishes too. Overall, they offer me a peace of mind that my aquarium is getting some essential minerals that it needs.
New aquarium owner here. When I got my aquarium, I didn’t know that my soft water didn’t have the calcium, magnesium, and minerals fish need to be healthy. After doing some research I learned about mineral rocks and found SunGrow’s mineral rocks. I like the way they look and that they’re natural. I’m purchasing these mineral rocks because they’re a great solution to my tank’s mineral needs and the price is good. Also, they need almost zero maintenance, and I like that you can leave them whole or crumble them. If you have soft water, these rocks are a great solution to keep your fish healthy.
