Description

Re-create the natural world of your finned friends with CaribSea Super Naturals Torpedo Beach Freshwater Sand. This beautiful, natural uncoated river substrate offers a finer grade of natural sand, packed with living, water-purifying bacteria, state-of-the-art clarifier and a complete water conditioner. With Torpedo Beach Sand all you need is tap water to get started, plus sand-size grains are friendlier to bottom dwellers. The approximately 0.5-2.0 mm grain-size immediately begins the cycling process, eliminating new tank syndrome and discouraging nuisance algae. The freshwater sand is great for detoxifying metals, eliminating ammonia, neutralizing chlorine and chloramines, plus it provides a protective slime coat for stressed fish and reduces nitrates and nitrites.

    Love the natural look

    By Nic86 on Oct 24, 2021

    This substrate is beautiful and natural looking. I changed from regular gravel to this substrate. It is thicker than sand but thinner than the painted fish aquarium gravel you can buy at big chain stores. It is heavy enough to vacuum without sucking up a bunch. It is light enough for natural roots if you choose to plant live plants. The fish love it. Most of all, the water clears up in no time as compared to 3 weeks of the colored gravel still causing the water to be cloudy. This is a fantastic product and there are many different color selections to choose from. It also came very quickly. I did rinse the product pretty good just because I was already fighting cloudy water from the other stuff This substrate is beautiful and natural looking.

    Pretty gravel

    By Lisa on Oct 31, 2018

    This substrate is bigger then sand; which is what I thought it was. It is more like fine gravel. It is very pretty. Fish waste shows on it very easily, so you'll know when it's time to gravel vac.

    Perfect grain size

    By Missy on Sep 5, 2018

    Was looking for a bigger grain size for my tank. One that wouldn’t blow around by fish or filters and look like a big cloud. Plus I wanted something that wouldn’t be so compact on plant roots. This was it! Very happy with this.
