Is it safe for my turtle
Answer by ChewyDec 29, 2020
These all-natural river rock pebbles are great for Red-eared Sliders, Map Turtles, Painted Turtles, Musk Turtles, Cooters, and other species of fully aquatic turtles. They are not suitable for softshell turtles.

Are these pebbles black when submerged in water?
Answer by ChewySep 08, 2021
The Turtle River pebbles are not black when submerged in water, they are different colors like normal rocks.

can you use this for fish
Answer by ChewyDec 26, 2022
This product can be used for fish.

Are these big enough to not be eaten by an aquatic turtle?
Answer by ChewyJan 20, 2021
The river pebbles are a variety of sizes and some of the small ones depending on the turtles size could be accidentally ingested. We always recommend watching the turtle when it eats and feeding foods that cannot fall into the pebbles as well as scooping out left over food after 10 minutes.

love them. fills my 10 gal perfectly.

I would recommend washing them an straining them a few times to make sure all the debris don’t go into the tank when you add them. Other than that I have no complaints.
