Jennifer says...I purchased this gravel for its apparent high shine. unfortunately it looks more matte in the tank. thats fine… thats only aesthetics.
What really concerned me was when washing the gravel it was sharp enough to give me abrasive sores on my hands. when clean i put it in the tank and it seemed to be cloudy, so i left it over night and then put the fish in, and the sediment started causing wounds on my fish… after the second clean the gravel was finally usable. I wouldn't recommend this gravel to first time fish owners, it is usable but requires a lot of work before it is safe to put into the tank.
