Includes: 1 bag of Mini Black Aquatic Sand

Instructions:
Use 1 to 2 pounds of substrate for every gallon of aquarium water. Rinse thoroughly in cold, clear water before using. Never use soap or detergent. To prevent disturbing the gravel when filling your tank, pour the water onto a saucer placed on the substrate. Fill aquarium halfway, then remove saucer and add décor and plants before you finish filling your aquarium. Once your aquarium is established, do not wash the substrate. Use a gravel vacuum once a month, or as needed, to remove loose debris.

National Geographic™ Aquarium Substrate is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's ok When I first washed this some of the substrate floated and I had to keep pushing it down to the bottom of the wash bucket. Some of the edges are a little too pointy for my taste. I prefer something more uniform. After a few months I upgraded and moved this into another tank and noticed it's white inside. For a better example, what I saw was more like old epoxy gravel that lost it's color. It looks like white plastic coated with black epoxy. Cleaning this substrate is easier than the heavy gravel. My live plants don't root well in this as I don't think it is heavy enough to hold them down. It did not alter my water.
