Review 1 for CaribSea Instant Aquarium Kon Tiki Gravel
PostedJune 16, 2011
from Cary, NC
I used this gravel before in a 12g tank setup and had wonderful fully cycled water ready for fish. This time I used for a 36g tank and did not get the same results. I did have to add a number of fish from other tanks, so that may have been an issue loading the tank with ammonia ("stress" level); although, I did not feed that evening and kept the lighting low to let them relax. I added additional Prime water conditioner and ammonia remover and added zeolite ammonia remover to the media in the filter which usually helps. By morning the ammonia level was a tad bit better. I also have a different filter system with the 36g (power filter) compared to Biowheel with the 12g.
The gravel is fine (less course than most at the stores). It is easy to clean (siphon out detritus).
