PondQuip is now distributing glass beads as a decorative alternative aquarium substrate to sand and gravel.
Colour: light blue
Completely rounded and smoothe, no sharp edges.
Dyed gravel is quite common in pet shops, but these dyes potentially could leech into the water over time. Glass beads are completely safe and inert.
Bead sizes are mixed between 1 and 3mm.
Glass beads sold in 3kg bags, which is the perfect amount for Fluval Edge aquariums.
