My tank was setup for 2 years, and I've changed the gravel 3 times, and never had an issue. I bought an 8kg bag of Pettex Jet Black Roman Gravel, a few weeks ago off Amazon. I washed it thoroughly as I do all my gravel but after a week I noticed white mold growing over it, along with my driftwood and glass walls, the water was also turning black and the smell coming from it was horrendous... it stunk out my entire house!!

I'm currently re-cycling the tank as water changes alone wouldn't solve the problem. My issue now is that when I try to wash the gravel the water is BLACK every-time, I've spent hours trying to get it clean and its unusable. Has anyone else had this issue with the brand?

Thanks
