Choosing appropriate substrate for your fish tank doesn't have to be a boring task, at Swell we have a wide variety of substrates to choose from to help you to customise your tank to suit you.
Gravel is a popular choice among many aquarium owners. You might want to opt for something subtle that wouldn't look out of place in the sea or at the bottom of a river. If you own a marine tank, TMC Coral Gravel could be ideal, or perhaps you might want something colourful and fun, like Swell's Multi-Coloured Harlequin Gravel.
Theres plenty to choose from, but more importantly you are getting something a little extra when you buy gravel for your tank.
Because gravel particles are bigger than sand particles it leaves more micro-spaces for cultures of beneficial bacteria to develop. These bacteria actually help your tank by breaking down fish-tank detritus and keeping your tank cleaner than some inert sands.
We don't like to keep you waiting at Swell, so if you order before 3pm weekdays you can enjoy same-day despatch on your order!
