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.

    Great Looking Sand

    By on

    I paid just a little over $12 a bag and am very happy with this sand. It is very fine so you wouldn't want to put direct flow on it.

    Did not rinse. Added to brackish water aquarium, then filled with water. A little clouding but cleared up overnight with filtration.

    Beautiful!

    This is really beautiful sand. It does have a pink color to it. I am hoping the color will stay as my tank ages. Looks great so far and I like the option of using live sand. The local stores did not have this option to purchase. Shipped fast.

    The most beautiful and best sand

    By on

    It's amazing to say the least.. Not only is the color bright, vibrant, but it is not over the top. It displays gorgeous pink which reflects great on the rest of your tanks community, especially pink feather dusters, ultra green gonis, and trumpet corals look amazing paired with this sand as the substrate, cough cough but what wouldn't?:) To add, this sand has millions of beneficial bacteria, allowing for immediate introduction of fish with the use of natures ocean sea water. This company is my go to for all my water and sand needs. I purchased 40lbs for a 30 gallon acrylic show. Nature's ocean baby! Pictures just don't do the justice as having this beautiful and in person!

    Doesn't seem all natural

    By on Top 500 Contributor

    I was really hoping for a natural sand with pink pieces like in the photos, but the bag I received looks like the pink pieces have been artificially dyed. It's very noticeable since they are all the exact same shade of pink. I ended up using a different product to keep with the natural theme of my tank.

    Clean -- good value

    By on

    Got this for a smaller reef system to work with BIO-Spira to begin my nitrogen cycle. Should know more about how well it works in a few weeks. The sand, itself, looks excellent.

    The sand arrived quickly and was well packaged to ensure a safe arrival. It was ready to go and looks great in our 55 gallon aquarium.
