Perfect color. Love that it is more coarse than fine play sand. Makes it easier to scoop my reptiles cage out. Overall a great product, just a little high in price because I need 3-4 bags every time I change the whole cage out. Still I would recommend to others!
Seems 2 do the job

Natural sand...from what I can tell. Relitively small bags that did have a leaker....but it's sand. Ya gotta expect that n I'm still happy with the product.

This sand is EXACTLY what I was looking for for my aquarium. It wasn't the usual color selection either; I loved bring able to choose a more natural color.
Good quality, as expected!

It is a small bag. When I received it, it had a tiny tear in the top causing some of the sand to spill out but it wasn't too significant at all. I'm using this for a portion of my planted tank aquascape and find this will be the perfect amount. If you're trying to fill the entire base of, for example, a 20 gallon high tank, you'll need more than one bag. Great quality and I am happy with this product. Adds a nice effect to my tank. The white is a very clean white color, but still looks natural.
not for aquariums

not recommended for aquarium..sand is so fine it ends up in filters and water is always cloudy because its in the water column.
Crystal Clear Water!

I don't think I even really had to rinse this stuff, but I did for about a minute before putting it into my tank, and it barely even clouded up the water! My last sand experience (purchased elsewhere) was a disaster, so this is a refreshing change. My only regret is that I didn't buy more!
Gorgeous, fine sand.

This sand is soft, fine, and beautiful. Looks great at the bottom of my new tank. Only downside is that, even after very thorough rinsing, it still left my tank cloudy. Not sure what I'm gonna do about that yet, but I'm sure it'll clear up in a few days.

I use this for the top layer of potting soil for my potted succulents. It helps keep the fruit flies from breading in the top of the pot and the other buggy creatures off my plants!

Really like this sand for my cichlid tank! It looks really good with my darker background and the green plants. Easy to see debris and vacuum the bottom. As usual....quick delivery from Chewy.
2/3 happy, 1/3 disappointed

Ordered 3 bags. One bag was ripped and taped shut missing half the sand. After being a previous employee of Chewy and knowing their dedication to high-quality, I am disappointed.
