Caribsea Super Natural, Torpedo Beach Sand 20lb Information

The first things that come to mind when the phrase aquarium accessories are mentioned are filter, pump, of course fish and plants and the aquarium itself. Rarely mentioned are two very important components, and one of them is lighting. The overhead lighting of an aquarium, while not necessarily a life or death option for most general aquariums, truly brings the aquarium to life. Good lighting means the difference between fully enjoying your aquatic environment and just a mediocre aquarium. Also if you have certain types of fish and your aquarium is an area that is dark enough to interfere with photosynthetic processes for your aquarium plants, bad lighting might impact the health of your aquarium's inhabitants.

Another frequently overlooked aquarium accessory that truly adds life to any aquarium is aquarium sand. This substrate gives personality to an aquarium and also it reminds your fish of their natural environment. A great choice for aquarium sand is Caribsea Super Natural, Torpedo Beach Sand from Pet Store. Each bag has a sand of differing sizes and colors that truly recreate an all-natural underwater world. The great thing about this substrate solution is that it does not affect your water's alkalinity, pH and this can even be used for salt water aquariums. If you are looking for an in-earth substrate material, definitely look into getting Caribsea Super Natural, Torpedo Beach Sand.

Super Naturals™ by CaribSea

Our pre-washed Super Naturals™ are designed with your success, and ease of use in mind. Packaged in sizes that make sense, most types are available in both 20 and 50 pound bags. We have carefully selected different sizes and colors for you, to help you create a natural underwater environment. These inert products will not affect your pH or alkalinity, allowing you to adjust both of these important water quality parameters any way you wish. While these can be used for marine aquariums, keep in mind you will have to use standard buffers, our aragaMilk™, or aragaMight™ to keep your alkalinity and pH up where they need to be.

Torpedo Beach - An inert, natural substrate. Recommended for freshwater aquariums with external filtration, and planted aquariums. Excellent for tanks with freshwater stingrays or catfish.

Manufacturer Info

Caribsea substrates are as precisely engineered as any piece of advanced equipment used by today`s hobbyists and professionals. CaribSea products are the chemical support, biological filtration, and biodiversity backbone for many of the most spectacular aquatic displays ever created. We are now celebrating our 35th year in the business, and our product line has continued to grow; making CaribSea your aragonite source and so much more.

Experience Level: Expert

Comments: Reasonably diverse composition, size and material (color, texture... substance) but within the expected range for freshwater sand (larger grains, higher quartz content, etc). Low dust makes for easy application. Product is inert(doesn't alter water chemistry). An excellent filler for increasing substrate depth (how I used it, along with aquatic plant-specific substrates). Perfect product for tanks without live plants that desire a natural feel. Smooth grains will not irritate soft bellied fish (e.g. many catfish). If only you could order this product in larger quantities. Then again, shopping at yout LFS (local fish store... just a little lingo) won't require shipping of what is essentially exotic, pulverized rock... and paying for shipping, of course.

Comments: great for stingrays and achirus errans, (brazilian soles)its very soft for their under belly. and will not change the PH or KH, (just sand) I highly recommend it for the freshwater aquaiums that require soft acidic water.
