When 1st putting it into the tank i had my tank i had my didn't like it due to the smell and the cloudiness of the water. But within a little time the water cleared up, smell was gone and my tank looks awesome and my comet goldfish appears to love it. I would highly recommend this product.

This was just as advertised. We placed 3 bags into a new 55 g aquarium, and it was about 2" deep. It looks very natural once the water was added. We are only 3 days into the cycling process so no real information if this will speed things up.

I had been looking for some really good natural gravel. I hadn't been able to find any in my LFS so I finally decided to take the plunge and order a bag of this gravel. I am so glad I did. It is the nicest natural gravel I have ever seen! Under aquarium lighting, it is very colorful and looks much nicer than the picture you see in the description. Lots of browns, whites and even clear gravel. It is very small like the description says but, I actually love the size.

Nice, but larger grain than "sand"

I was really expecting this to be much smaller grain than it actually is. The description says 1 to 2mm, but it seems to me that 2mm to 4mm is more like it. The beauty of not having to spend hours and hours and hours prepping gravel for our 55 gallon tank was great though. I got this because I needed something smooth for my cories. I am overall satisfied, but remain slightly disappointed in the grain size...

I bought 80lbs for my 75 gallon and this tank is running crystal clear and testing perfect. I will be buying more.

Love the grain size and natural color of this gravel. I used it to replace play sand in a 100gal Central American cichlid tank and could not be happier with the gravel. The included clarifier and bio-supplements really do provide for a crystal clear and healthy environment instantly.
