Walmart Pea Gravel

Has anyone had any experience with Walmart's pea gravel that they offer in their garden center? My Walmart has a few 50 lb bags that are on after season clearance. The price is so good that I woouldn't mind having to wash it. The size is a bit smaller than many aquarium gravels, but is it safe?

I have pea gravel from walmart, in my 150, it has been there close to 3 years. I am pretty sure it is safe

pea gravel should be fine, as long as it's a small enough grain size.

its not ideal for all plants to grow in though, especially if its the coarser grade/larger grain size.

Here in lincoln Fish World sells 50lb bags of the pea gravel for something like $5.
