I absolutely love the look of this stuff. I just upgraded from a tiny 10 gal tank with polished river rocks for substrate to a 50 gal, and this substrate is leaps and bounds more appealing. The image they show on the site is darker than what it is in my tank, but I still love it. Plus, the added water purifiers and beneficial bacteria are a huge plus.
I would recommend this to a friend!

It's a little lighter color than I expected, but there wasn't much dust to it and the water cleared relatively fast. The bag contained watery gravel, making it heavy enough that I had to work to get it into the aquarium on the stand. I really like the gravel size, not too fine but much smaller than regular gravel.

I absolutely LOVE CaribSea products. This is the first time I have purchased the Torpedo Beach Gravel (I usually buy the Tahitian sand substrate) and I must say I am pleasently surprised. The grain size is perfect for my African Cichlid tank and the fish love it. I decided on the lighter color because it really makes the colors of my fish "pop" whereas the Tahitian substrate, although beautiful, was a bit too dark for some of my fish making them barely visible. The instant aquarium substrate is also a plus because there is no need for rinsing and very little cloudiness once water is added. I highly recommend this product and I definitely recommend buying it from PETCO. In local stores, it retails for nearly $30 for a 20lb bag. I was able to get it for $16 for 20lbs at PETCO. Great product!

It's very beautiful in my tank and my fish love it too. The only thing I didn't like was how long the water stayed cloudy even after I added the Bio-Magnet Clarifier and DeChlorIt. I changed the water at least three times before it went away. I would recommend rinsing this product before you use it, or the water will be cloudy for *hours*.

Torpedo Beach gravel is really beautiful in the tank. It appears mostly white and really brightens up the tank.
