When it comes to substrate, I generally prefer "natural" gravel. However, I have been thinking about switching things up for my next betta, and was looking into colored gravel.
My last experience with the stuff was some PETCO brand white gravel which began to peel and chip within a few weeks. Is peeling and/or dye coming off in the water inevitable for all colored gravel?
Anyone have any favorite brands they use? Or is there a specific treating method (how the gravel is dyed) that is better than others?
Any feedback would be great.
And to show my gratitude, here is a cartoon betta I found on Google
