Hey Siren is this what you have:

http://shop.aquakoiaquatics.com/aqua...avel-250-c.asp

I believe its called Crystal Glass Gravel - I believe you put 1 lb for every gallon of water? or 2lbs for ever gallon of water? Does it say on your bag, before I order. I have a 3 gallon tank.

Also, what color did you order?

Yep, that's the stuff I ordered a 2 kilo bag and had some left over. My tank is 25cm x 25cm and 15 litres which I believe is around the 4 gallon mark. I know the conversions are a nightmare so hope that info helps.

Oh, think I ordered the blue not the turquiose

any chance you can confirm if blue or turquoise? I guess maybe the light makes it more turquoise if you indeed have blue?

And 2kg bag would be fine for my 3g if you have 15litres as its just around 4g! thank you again!!!


Also, the plants in your tank are they real or silk or plastic? Cause I see they are in a base sitting on the gravel.

Hiya. Sorry for the delay, we popped out for dinner. I've just checked the bag and it's definately blue gravel. The plants are real. I just potted them with a bit of compost into tea light holders!

Thank you. I'm very happy with the way it turned out and it blends with the room instead of being sort of an eyesore.

Here is one of my 10 gallons, waiting, longing, for a betta to inhabit it. It currently has a panda corydora, 3 threadfin rainbows, and an albino bristlenose plecostomus (clasping to the treasure chest in the right rear). My betta of 3 years (and 2 states- traveled from CO to NY with me when I moved) that I adopted from a life in a vase off craigslist passed away about a month ago. If any of you have bettas up for adoption or know of a reputable breeder, please let me know! I am on aquabid daily.

PS the tank looks cloudy because I just did a water change and redecoration. Bottom is black sand and gravel mix. I was going for a simplistic look...
