Love the sand. Unfortunately, it brought Copepods along with it and now my tank is covered with them.
I bought 3 bags for my 55 gallon aquarium and did what the directions said. Loosely raised the sand in the bag with a hose and put it in the tank. Added water and my plants & accessories and it was clear from the start!! If they have black, I'm going to get more for my 2 other tanks with gravel in them now. VERY PLEASED!
Beautiful sand didn't need to rinse
I decided to put sand in my aquarium instead of gravel and I love the look. Live plants look great and the fish can be seen so much better. Piled high in back and don't smooth it out.
It was perfect for my aquarium. It's not nutrient rich so root tabs or the like will need to be added for live plants. The sand is very fine so care is needed when cleaning.
This sand looks beautiful in my tank. You can see all the little sand crystals. I also love that it came with the water clarifier so I didn’t have to buy that separately. The color really makes my live plants and fish look great, and my ghost shrimp love it too.
So far I love this sand and my Cory's and trapdoor snails love it too!
Do not rinse this sand! It contains good live bacteria and if you rinse it, you take all of what you paid for away! I put 20lb into my 10 gallon and love the look. It did not cloud my water even a little bit, I used a pitcher to slowly pour the water in one corner and let the water work it’s way around. Absolutely zero issue with clouding.
The instructions on the bag were amazing! It was so easy step-by-step instructions and suggestions that it was easy for me. And that was important because I am in a Mobile Wheelchair with very bad arthritis and the instructions help me to lessen my stress! I highly recommend this product and will use it again since I only got a 20 pound bag and I’ll need another one.
This is bar far the greatest buy for a really good price. All four of my tanks have this sand in it.
