This product is advertised as pre-rinsed but it is dirtier than anything I have ever seen! It is an amazing substrate but if you do not rinse it before scaping your tank you will be in for days of dirty water (written from experience). It holds plant roots fantastic and they grow beautifully full in this substrate. (This product does not lose stars in my book because it is an understood fact to wash all substrates before applying them to a fish tank.)

But I expected this, if you don't, maybe you haven't changed substrate in an established tank before, I'm sure it will clear in a few days. I had rocks and sand, but want to plant my tank, so I switched to this. Expectation is that it will hold my roots and help me move into aquatic plants.

Instructions for adding this were very poor: The instructions don't say this but be SURE to rinse the substrate before adding it. I didn't rinse it and my tank water is a MESS and it'll be a miracle if it doesn't clog my filter. Will my plants grow better? I hope so, that remains to be seen.

Nice substrate. easy to clean. Looks great. We will see how long it lasts. After 4 days new growth of 2 inches on swords, and new runners on crypts. I do add CO2 and ferts.
Saved all of my plants from a disaster that was another substrate.
