    Top Fin® Premium Quality Aquarium Gravel is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality - might raise pH a bit (please read) Overall I'm happy with this gravel. It looks excellent and holds up well (good quality). This is a natural option for fish enthusiasts without the worry of added colors leeching into the water. My only concern is that certain pieces of this gravel fizz when exposed to vinegar, which may indicate the presense of limestone or other pH-raising mineral. Not all the gravel caused the fizz - maybe 20% of it. Nothing to be alarmed about - shouldn't raise pH. I haven't noticed any pH swings since using this. It's good stuff. My set up: 10-gallon glass tank w/ 6 female bettas. 5-gallon glass tank w/ 1 male betta.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good, about 3 wks in my aquarium replaced gravel in my established tank. clean, did not cloud water at all. I did rinse. gravel is large and will not be vacuumed up during cleaning. seems smooth. my bottom dwellers fins and barbels were damaged by old gravel. only time will tell if they grow back. probly not good for real plants unless potted.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this gravel!! This is great quality gravel for a great price!! It has a beautiful color and looks great in my fish tank!! I wouldn't suggest this in a turtle tank, though. These pebbles are very small, so the turtle could easily choke and swallow one. As I was saying earlier it is great in my fish tank! I was going for a natural look,so these are perfect!! I would highly recommended these to anyone who wants great quality gravel for a great price and a beautiful addition to any aquarium :))))

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Betta Aquarium Set-up Natural gravel is best for Betta. The fish colors will glow and your Betta is easy to locate when they hide. I purchase 5-pounds of smaller gravel and 1-pound of larger sized gravel for 5-gallon Betta aquarium.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice This is a pretty gravel and looks good in the tank. I did rinse it off before putting in the tank but I believe it was already pretty clean.
