Get the best substrate for your aquarium and use the Caribsea Ocean Direct Live Sand Oolite from Pet Store. This sand is all natural and is made of genuine Caribbean live sand without any chemical added to it. This sand is uniquely processed using the patented Sea Breathe Laser Technology. This process keeps the beneficial bacteria in the sand alive. It preserves more than 1000 times bacteria than other methods.

Every grain of Ocean Direct is coated with bacteria and covered through capillary action by a thin film of natural ocean water. The film is exposed to the atmosphere, which result to increased growth of beneficial bacteria without the growth of toxic organisms.

The Caribsea Ocean Direct Live Sand Oolite comes in a 5-pound, breathable bag with a pack of Bio-Magnet clarifier. This clarifier facilitates the distribution of the bacteria to where they are most needed such as sand beds, live rock surfaces and in also biological filtration media.

By simply using this live sand to your aquarium, you already create a blooming, natural ocean environment in an instant. Your aquatic livestock will surely enjoy the beautiful aquascape that this sand creates. They will also benefit from the beneficial bacteria that will keep their habitat clean and healthy.

Comments: I use this in already established and in cycling systems. This product is top notch and delivers without unwanted phosphates/nitrates/ammonia ect. This is an excellent product to add 1 week into your cycle and end the cycle in less than 2-3 weeks. 10 stars

Comments: The sand is nice but getting it into an existing tank is not so easy. I scooped some in my hand and gently placed it in the water. I think it disturbed my corals. Everyone just didnt seem as healthy afterwards.

Comments: I know a lot of people get burned by poor quality live sand and believing it will make a difference on their tanks cycle but this live sand is the real deal. You should always still let your tank cycle before adding critters, despite what many live sand marketing material says. However, this live sand made a huge beneficial impact on my tanks water quality in only 24 hours even though the tank had been cycling with a bed of lower quality live sand and some premium live rock for over a week.
