Never Again Product Review by MARTIN HILE (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: I would never purchase the indo-pacific black sand again. I have a high quality magnet cleaner for the glass and there are iron chunks in this "sand". The ferrous material sticks to the magnetic cleaner and one must be extremely careful or you'll scratch your tank. Awful garbage that I would never purchase again. The only choice is a tear down and restart with different material or pick the crud out with a net over many months.

Black Live Sand Product Review by ALISHA JONES (Posted on 10/22/13)

Comments: I was expecting it to be more black to give my tank a different look than most, but
Other than that I'm happy with everything else!

Overall good Product Review by ELIZA (Posted on 7/12/13)

Comments: I really like this sand. And am using it for a five gallon mantis tank.

My only issues were that it had brown bits in it too. There's also the issue that the black sand prefers to be on the top...but a simple fix is just to stir it.

The magnet thing worried me for awhile until I decided I could live with a brush on a stick.

Overall great, if you're willing to compromise for that cool look.

Indo-Pacific Product Review by JOHN SCOTT (Posted on 4/8/13)

Comments: This is what the sand looks like in many Indo-Pacific regions I think this sand is spot on and have had no problems with it with my (LOW end) magnet cleaner.
If you want a black look with the buffer capabilities of white sand buy it as this product works for me.

Bio-filter complete Product Review by FREDERICK DOMINGUEZ (Posted on 7/25/12)

Comments: After all of the negative things said about this particular product I would have to totally disagree. The color blend is good, and the sand grain size is excellent. This is especially true if you are trying to create an Indo-Pacific biotope where the sand isn't fine, but mixed with lots of rubble rock. The best thing about the Agra-Alive series of sand mixtures is the consistent number of bacteria per bag. The addition of the Indo-Pacific Black into my system helped kick start my bio-filter almost immediately. As always, an overall great product. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone trying to recreate their own little piece of the Indo-Pacific.
