CaribSea Dry Aragonite Special Grade Reef Sand Information




1.25–1.95 mm diameter grain size. A revolution in reef-keeping! This is the one you’ve been reading about in all the hobbyist publications. This grade of aragonite is specifically engineered for plenum-type nitrate reducing beds or anywhere a deeper bed is called for. The pore water space created by precision grading also allows maximum pH support and dissolution of calcium carbonate.

CaribSea Aragonite buffers to the highest pH and delivers more calcium, carbonate, and trace elements than any other substrate. Little or no rinsing required, aragonite keeps aquariums healthier, longer.

Good sand

Reviewers Rating Excellent!


Posted: 3/26/2014 from Novi, MI UNITED STATES
5.0 5
Experience Level: Intermediate


Comments: My favorite heavy grade sand. I like that it does not easily get blown around by my powerheads. Feels very much like sand on the beaches of Cancun, Mexico if you have ever vacationed there. A 40lb bag gave me a 3" sand bed in my JBJ28 nano tank. Good product. As always, thank you MarineDepot for the great service.

Comments: Sand is very dirty. The grain size and realization of a real reef is great. The picture shows a whiter sand than it really is. It is a light beigh in color and I was wanting kinda just like the picture and that is why I gave it a 4 instead of 5 rating. Delivery was fast. I will buy from here again

Comments: This is what you need if you don't want too fine or too corse sand. Really good stuff....Rinse it well (until it looks cloudy instead of milky) about 5 pounds at a time in a 5gal bucket & it will clear up in just a few hours time. Really beneficial to your reef tank. *****FIVE STARS *****

Great Reef Sand

Reviewers Rating Great

Comments: This sand is the perfect size and color in my opinion. It is not so big that it traps detrius, but not so small that your power heads blow it around. I don't care what anyone says RINSE THIS SAND before you add it to a tank or you will be sorry. My skimmer is still pulling silt out of it when I stir a section of the sandbed. If you don't rinse it your water will look like skim milk for a couple days. It took mine 2 days to mostly clear with a skimmer/ sump and a canister filter on it. Other then that this sand is beautiful!

Quality Fine Grain Aragonite

by
Reviewers Rating Excellent!


Posted: 6/7/2012 from KISSIMMEE, FL UNITED STATES
5.0 5
Experience Level: Expert


Comments: Exactly as described. Perfect size grains for deep sand bed. It may be a little too fine for the main display if you have a lot of water movement. I am using it in a refugium. In my opion I would not pay extra for the "live sand" in a bag that is being sold. That stuff is another passing gimick preying on the misinformed. This product will have all the bacteria necessary in due time and it is a better value.

Comments: This sand is exceptional. I was just snorkling / diving in Hawaii and this side is identical to the sand found on the reefs and near the walls. The fish thrive in this size and texture of sand. I've seen it first hand! I will not be using any other sand for my substrate.

Comments: I purchased the 40# of SG Reef Sand for a new 60G cube. The sand is very consistent in size and shape of the grains and it "washed" out a minor amount of impurities quickly. Looks great in the reef and it is definately a good value.

Comments: So far, this sand has been great. The color really helps reflect the light and the coarse grain makes it easy to clean!
