    Aqua Culture Black Chips Aquarium Gravel:

    • Beautifies
    • Provides surface for beneficial bacterial

    Directions: 

    Instructions: Tank requirements: we recommend a depth of approximately 2 inches of gravel, especially when used with an undergravel filter. For most aquariums, this amounts to 1.5 to 2 pounds per gallon of capacity. Additional uses: hobbies And crafts, ponds, terrariums.;  Rinse gravel thoroughly in cool or lukewarm water before use to remove excess dust particles. Rinse until water is clear. It is recommended that you set up your aquarium And allow the filter And heater to operate for at least 24 hours before adding your fish. Be sure to use a water conditioner to remove any chlorine And other chemicals present in your water since these chemicals can be fatal to your fish. For those new to the aquarium hobby, purchasing a good book on fishkeeping is always a wise investment.

    PAINT CHIPS to reveal white rock underneath!

    This gravel is a smoking deal & now I know why. We bought loads of this stuff for my son's 55 gal tank. After just a couple weeks of tank cleanings I started to notice white bits in the gravel. Turns out it's the black paint chipping off the gravel. Spend a little more money & get better quality gravel! You'll be happy you did!!

    Gravel not completely black...

    This is not well colored gravel. About 70% of it is all black, the rest shows white in the little grooves and pits of the pebbles. The material is not uniform in color, the substrate looks a little blotchy in the tank. Apparently when the color was added to white gravel in a tumbler, not enough paint or dye was added. However, at about 57% off (the regular price for 5 pounds of gravel is $5. This was $2.17), I really can't complain too much. [The upright, green & white thing is a piece of zucchini for the pleco to eat.]

    DON'T GET THE BLACK "GRAVEL"
    7/12/2015

    Customer review by SooperFreak

    i rinsed off in cool before adding it. it has literally been in my tank for about 5 hours and the black coating on this "gravel" is already coming off. i have white sand on one side of tank and you can see the black coating sitting on top of the sand. the black "gravel" is chipped off and showing the white CONCRETE pieces underneath. it appears to be tiny concrete pieces dipped in some kind of rubber coating. it has totally fouled my tank. i am extremely disappointed. GRAVEL by definition is rock, not concrete. now i have to empty my tank and take out that garbage. there is NO WAY that coating isn't going to mess with my ph. WHY would you make a product like this? if i could post a pic of it (with a picture of my dated receipt) i would, so i'll just have to take it to Facebook. the public needs to know.

    I'm sorry you had an unpleasant experience with our gravel. We use a white Quartz base rock to apply our paint - it is NOT concrete. Quartz is an inert stone and will not affect PH.

    I bough6t this gravel and love the way it looks in my tank the reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because every once in a while a flake of gravel floats to the surface but other than that I have no problems with it and really like it it goes relly good with my background.
