Description

Enhance your finned friends’ underwater habitat with CaribSea Ocean Direct Original Caribbean Marine Live Sand. This substrate uses "Sea-Breathe" technology, which preserves original marine bacteria on a moist packed sand. Every grain is infused with bacteria and encapsulated in a thin film of real seawater. The thin film is open to the atmosphere for unparalleled gas exchange, which results in high counts of natural and beneficial bacteria with a non-toxic buildup of metabolic by‑products. With millions of bacteria and a beautiful aragonite substrate, it provides your scaly friends with a thriving, natural aquarium balance quickly and effectively. Every bag contains a 0.25-6.5 mm grain size and is alive with up to 1000 times more beneficial bacteria than other preservation methods.

    By Sarah on Dec 2, 2018

    Took forever to clear up even though we were extremely careful putting it in. However, once it settled and cleared it was exactehat we wanted! I read all of the reviews and heavily researched before purchase.
