  • Perfection galore!

    By on

    I had looked at a big box store for some sand but it was SO expensive. I wanted a more clean sand for the aquarium due to what type of fish I would eventually put in the tank. Chewy did not fail! This came in a great bag, easy instructions and it’s so much better for fish.

  • Love This Sand

    By on

    Absolutely gorgeous! Gives the tank a beautiful natural looking landscape. I have a 75 gallon tank, so I do need to buy 2 more bags. The price is the cheapest here. I do strongly recommend rinsing the sand first. Lots of residue.

    Really like the way the standups in the aquarium although it’s been two weeks and the cloudiness has yet to subside. Otherwise looking forward to a beautiful tank when fish are added.

  • Tahitian Moon black sand is very nice looking for your fresh water tank

    By on

    I put 2 quantity 20lb bags in my octagon tank (30 or 40 gallon tank two bags was barely enough) and removed the older black gravel (Large gravel you buy at the store) the upgrade proved to be nice and really gets that ocean effect like the black sand from Hawaii that I was able to buy as a kid really nice look. I do recommend it this product, cleaning it is a tough once I put it in a 5 gallon bucket (One bag of 20LB at a time) and I simply ran the hose until the water was clear went in the tank no problem very nice look I am very pleased Chewy had it for the very best price as well. Buy allot so you can make that hill effect which I think is more natural looking.

  • Satisfied with product

    By on

    one 20lb bag was enough for my 40 gal breeder even though i got two bags. Comes with a liquid to minimize how cloudy it makes the tank that works well. Should work for my axolotls.
