The gravel looks really good. Do you think the regular colored gravel they normally sell is ok, or should I look for something smoother like the kind in the pic?

The color on colored gravel tends to chip off. Look for a natural gravel, I think my bag said "aquarium aggregates"? You can tell just by looking at the stuff in the bags that some are a better smoother quality than others.

If you want something more colorful look in Michael's or even Walmart for the tiny glass pebbles to mix in.

I want black, so do you know if that color tends to chip? Also, is there a cheaper place than petsmart to buy black gravel that will work for fish? The pet stores are a little expensive

My cories are on rounded gravel, and they are doing just fine. The bright pinks and purples make it easier to spot the little guys, too. :)

this looks nice and smooth

I'm not sure if the color will chip off or not with this product.

Aquarium gravel is expensive but you only have to buy it once
