Gravel & Substrates

Pet City offers a large range of gravel & substrate for your fish tanks. This includes a vareity of fish tank stones, sand, artifical gravel and plant substrates. Deciding if gravel or sand is going to be more beneficial for your tank will generally depend on the species of fish you own. Some fish like to bury down into sand and do a good job to naturally help the water filter sand. Axolotls also have a nasty habitat of eating gravel. However the benefits for a gravel base will allow water to flow much easier through the fish tank stones and can be highly advantegous for some freshwater tanks. If you have any questions about choosing gravel or sand for your tank, we recommend visiting our aquarium department at Pet City to speak with our staff or call us on (07) 3349 2086.
