Best Color Gravel?
Best Color Gravel?
I like basic colors. I have black gravel in my Tetra tank, with a small bag of orange gravel my 9 year old wanted and I wish wasn't there. I have "salt and pepper" cichlid sand in my multI tank that I love. And I have regular pea gravel in my 10 gallon, which looks good too.
in my new set up I hav like silver black and royal blue as my gravel it looks well!!!
;D C W
I like more natural colors for larger tanks. I have brownish gravel in my 20 gal, mostly because I didn't want the other colors they had, and it was the only color in that size bag. But, in my betta tank, 2.5 gal, I had the neon gravel and neon plants and decor.
I have a blue color gravel. its awsome
my 10 gallon at home's gravel is blue, green, and purple. it all came in a bag, I didnt mix it.
the 30 gallon at the dentist has royal blue with white mixed in.
I like natural gravel best though :-\
I agree that natural gravel looks best, I have light brown gravel in my 10 gallon and I think I will put black in my new tank that I will hopefully get soon.
NATURAL-COLORED GRAVEL IS BEST LOOKING TO ME AS WELL. PERIOD. LOL After all, isn't that why we set up a tank - to have a "piece of nature" at our own homes?
My tanks have the Red Fluorite in it so I don't really have gravel at all, but it does have a natural look to it. Noel's tank does have a little red gravel mixed in and it gives the Fluorite a rather neat look to it. I will say that the Fluorite does take a lot of washing to make it habitable for the fish and I mean a LOT of washing. (otherwise the water becomes quite muddy)
natural gravel or sand
Chickadee, what's Red Fluorite??
flourite is a kind of gravel that like has a slow-release fertilizer in it?
My 15 gallon tank has brown/natural colored gravel. I think this looks best.
I've read that if the tank is to colorful or to bright it can stress out the fish. Is this true?
If it is like bright neon pink or something like that, yes it can stress out the fish. So if you like garishly bright colors, you should mix it with black or something.
I like black and red mixed when the light shines off it look really cool
Bright colored gravel is stressful. That's like having walls painted bright pink or neon green...yikes! Some fish prefer darker gravel than others...tetras will show off their colors best with black gravel.
I have dark green in my mbuna,and my tetra tank,and black and white mixed in my south american tank.
Well my gravel is not bright
I have black gravel , with bright red and green rocks
I actually like the natural colors I think it makes the fish more at home
id love to have Black gravel with large white and red pebbles in it but with the size of my tank its already taken 80kg and it doesn't even cover!!! so it was natural gravel for me! especially with the price of black gravel! but the natrual does look quite nice!
How big is ur tank is it like wall sized or something ??
Omorrokh, I just noticed your question (I know you asked it long ago). But anyway, Fluorite is a special substrate for planted tanks. I presume Rose was referring to Seachem's Fluorite substrate (Seachem is a company that makes this substrate).
I think its all your preference. (Pluse fish) I whent for a blue colour kus I really liked it. Its up to you
question do fish see in color, black and white or know one reallys knows? if they see in colors I think like a bright pink gravel would just stress them out even more but i'm still a noob at this too so what do I know ;D
**** how big is ur tank is it like wall sized or something ??
