They are rocks, what can I say...
By H. Kline
I can say they are smooth and clean (very little sediment or dust in the bag). Based on the Amazon picture I was expecting grey colored pea gravel. What I received were stones all in the brown family of colors, and as others have commented the stones were much larger than expected. The turtle in the picture on the bag must be huge if the stones pictured are the same size as what I received. That said my little guy has voiced no complaints and I am sure he/she is better off with these smooth rocks than the smaller jagged sharp aquarium gravel he came home with.
Fast delivery ordered on a Friday, selected Prime (2 day) delivery and received them Saturday via the USPS. In deference to public safety, I am not sure I would select "same day Amazon drone delivery" for my 10 pound bag of rocks if it were offered.
I give 5 stars to the larger than expected "pebbles" but take off one star for the inaccurate picture.

The product is cloudy when inserted into a tank with water, but the grains are extremely EXTREMELY small, almost as if the sand was clay. It's much finer than beach sand or those you find in your average pet supplies store. good product overall for my turtles.

Exo Terra Small turtle Pebbles
Received the product. The stones are very clean with only a small amount of powder/dust in the bag. They rinsed off easily and have a polished look to them. There is a nice variation of colors to the stones. Therre are no sharp edges to them so no danger to turtle shells or hands. One bag is enough for a 10 gallon tank. I am using them in a 20 gallon long tank and held them in place with plastic food packaging that I had in my home. This allowed me to make a small ridge for the turtles to climb out of the water and keep another area of the bottom of the tank deeper for the filter to work and as a swimming area. To cover the entire bottom of a 20 gallon tank, I would advise 2-3 bags. Now, you can compare these to those available at your local landscaper/major home hardware stores. If you have an inexpensive turtle, maybe these stones are too costly, if you have a small, fragile or expensive turtle, these stones are probably a good purchase decision. My small turtles already like to try and burrow for cover into these stones, so they like them!!!
