Dorset Pea Gravel 5mm, provides a natural riverbed look to your aquarium. Ideal for camouflage, and helps to provide security for your fish. Gravel can also protect eggs from spawning fish.
This natural aquarium substrate acts as rooting medium for live flora and gives stability to aquarium ornaments.
Fish like to dig around in the gravel for food. Use larger Natural Stone to create a statement piece and provide additional shelter, and breeding opportunities for your fish.
Overtime the gravel becomes dirty, as uneaten food and fish waste can build up, and must be cleaned.
This gravel (as with all gravels) should be rinsed thoroughly before putting into the aquarium, until the water runs clear.
This gravel can also be used as a potting grit for succulent plants.
Sizes available: 5kg and 25kg
