    Great cheap sand

    By Scott on Apr 13, 2021

    I've used this in several tanks now, it's a great price point and it's decent live sand.

    Buy Caribsea this sand has an awful manure smell

    By Mike on Feb 24, 2021

    I was very disappointed, my sand smelled like manure from day 1. The bag was not damaged or expired. It's been 1 month and the smell has not gone away. I tried contacting the company who sells this and they asked to call but never got back to me. I regret this purchase 100%. Do not buy this product.

    Good looking natural sand, white in color

    By on

    Received 160 lbs. The dates on bags showed it to be about 4 months old, well sealed and wet inside with no leaks. It did have some odor to it. I added entire contents of bag without rinsing and it took the typical time it takes for a new set up to clear. It is sugar sand, the 1-1.5 mm grain size is not accurate. High flow blows it around some so put a rock where it craters or you will be fixing your bed every few days. I like the look of it and I've had coarser beds before so I'll enjoy this for a change of pace. I will add lots of Nassarius snails after a while and leave it alone.

    Loved it. It's just as described.

    By on

    Showed up on time. Still wet like it should be to keep living biological alive. No odor. Very pretty white color. Its somewhat fine with some bigger pieces. It settled very quickly in my 90 gallon aquarium.

    It's ok needs more than just the sand

    By on

    Did not seem to have any advantages as far as the cycle of the tank but I love the sand
