Description

Because there’s no substitute for the real thing, build your saltwater aquarium display on the foundation of Nature's Ocean Bio-Activ Live Aragonite Natural Aquarium Sand. This patented, premium-quality sand is 100% natural from the ocean and contains live marine bacteria that quickly stabilizes your tank so you can add fish the same day you set it up. It eliminates nitrogenous waste and restores natural organic balance to provide a safe environment for your finned friends. The addition of live aragonite helps reduce harmful nitrate, maintain proper pH and enhance buffering capacity, while also providing essential inorganic elements needed to achieve and maintain pristine water quality.

Key Benefits
  • 100% real ocean sand is collected in its natural environment using a patented process that preserves all bacteria in their natural live state.
  • 10 million natural live marine heterrotophic, autotrophic and chemolithotrophic bacteria per pound provide proper inorganic balance.
  • Instant cycling eliminates nitrogenous waste including ammonia and nitrite and restores natural organic balance to provide a safe environment.
  • Live aragonite helps reduce harmful nitrate, maintain proper pH and enhance buffering capacity, along with providing essential inorganic elements.
  • Sand granules measure 0.5-1.7 mm; also includes trace elements and critical nutrients needed to maintain ideal tank water quality.

    not what was described

    By on

    The description says 1-1.5 mm grain size. Wrong this is sugar sand with a few shell pieces tossed in. Four days to clear up. Had to clean out filters daily because they were plugged up and overflowing.

    GREAT LIVE SAND

    By on

    My 280 gallon salt water fish tank was set up over 5 years ago ..the old sand died, causing a problem with the water, and killed off several fish (Nitous oxide bulbs) . We removed the old sand, replaced it with 100 lbs of Nature's Ocean, and the tank is fine now..fish are doing much better. Great product ..best price..thank you Chewy ...Edwin

    You cannot get any better

    This combined with decent LR and Nature's Ocean Nutri-SeaWater Natural Live Ocean will be awesome for adding livestock in a day or so without a 3-month cycle. When using the LS, use a bit of filter floss to eliminate the natural cloudiness quickly. ;) If not that's cool...
