good grain size featured

Comments I like the size of these grains, as the larger pieces are considerably less likely to get blown around in high flow applications. This is a good product for seeding the tank, and it works well in any marine application. It does well for any sand sifter or burrowing fish.


Liked about it The best thing about the special grade reef sand is the size. From 1.0mm to 2.0mm, this product will not get blown around like the smaller sugar sized sand. This is important if you have really high flow in your reef. The color is nice, also, giving a nice natural look to the tank.


Didn't like I've got two complaints about this sand. First, I don't see any value in buying live sand. Compared to the dry counterpart, I think it's a waste of money to buy this product live. If you save your money and go with the dry special grade reef sand, you're going to be just as satisfied in a few months (once the dry stuff becomes live). And second, there's not telling what exactly is in this bag. While it's not too likely you'll get hitchhikers, it's not out of the question.

GREAT for a high flow reef!

General I have used this on all mt tank and have suggested it to many other people. Every person I know who has used it has loved it.

I have a 125 with 12,000gph flow and this substrate does not move around at all.

If your tired of the sand storms with finer aragonite try Carib Sea Special Grade Reef Floor...

You wont regret it!


Liked about it It's a great size not too small not too large
Stays put even in a high flow reef.
for the most part it's clean (free of debris)
Look very nice as long as it's kept clean.
easy to clean and does not siphion out.


Didn't like Took a long time to rinse but so do all the others.
