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 Substrate. This patented, premium-quality reef material 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.

    Great combination

    By on

    The combination of sand along with all the small shells and shell fragments produces a very pleasing and realistic look. It did not cloud the water very much and the Gobies love it. I really appreciated the fact that I didn't have to spend any time rinising the substrate before use. Hopefully, it does not contain an over abundance of silicates. I'm going to order more for another reef tank.

    Looks like a Mini-Beach

    This is the second time I've used this Live Sand setting up Marine Tanks and it's just BEAUTIFUL! White sand with lots of Small Shells and the Bacteria helps it through the Cycling Process. It truly looks like a Ocean Beach, both my Damselfish and Gobies love carrying it around and moving it!

    Quite pretty

    By on

    This live sand is a fine grain with small shells in it. It's very pretty and looks great in the tank. I have a new saltwater tank and it has helped cycle it quickly. It wasn't very dusty at all, had slightly cloudy water for only a couple hours. I would definitely order again if I ever need more. Much better quality than what I've seen in the stores for the price.
