Yup! I think I got like a 20lb bag for a pretty good price. Really love how natural it looks in the tank. Lemme see if I have a picture..

Here it is with my goldfish (and apparently the pleco! Didn't even notice) and the mopani wood. Absolutely love this gravel.

I didn't have a choice when it came to my substrate, my filter was not approved for sand and it would void the warranty if I put it in a tank with sand. I would find sand too difficult to clean as well so I just have the black gravel and river rocks, used to have marbles too but eh decided I didn't like them. I like my gravel and a few have some spots on them where it looks like the color has chipped off but I don't worry about it. Plus on the bag when I bought it it said not to rub them together . . . so idk. I hate it when instructions tell you not to do something and won't explain why -_-

Same... and it's so hard not to follow them when you don't know why because you want to find out <_<

This happened to me in a game once. One person said not to do this to the monster we were fighting but refused to tell us why. So we did it. It ate us. Now we know D:

Or the instructions say to do something and will not say why lol I tend to be an ass just for the sake of being one so if someone tells me NOT to do something but fails to explain why I shouldn't do it . . . I do it anyway just to piss them off xD When microwaving something it says to "let stand" I never did that until someone told me it was because the food was still cooking, even if the microwave is not on the food is still cooking so, for years I was eating soggy food because I can't follow simple instructions xD

Well Crazy Diamond I am with you, I will do it anyway because I want to make sure they are clean and its not like they arent going it rub together when you clean it with a vacuum tube anyway. But I am thinking this natural color gravel that Kithy posted will be good.

I like gravel, but get the pebbles. You won't have a problem with coloring coming off. Now, on my blue gravel yeah it started to chip.

I am also contemplating between these 3 choices. Any recommendation for nice good quality gravel that can be purchased online? Thinking maybe using black gravel with nice clean stones as decorative with a centerpiece Malaysian driftwood.
