CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™

Only CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™ Live Sands contains not just the broad spectrum of marine bacteria found in the ocean, but additional specially selected strains of marine bacteria as well. Arag-Alive!™ compresses new tank cycle time and suppresses the initial ammonia spike. Arag-Alive!™ creates a natural biological balance, and makes cycling a new aquarium faster and safer. Live rocks and most invertebrates can be added immediately. Gradually introduce fish within the first 3 weeks, and do not exceed one inch of fish per 5 gallons during this time.

Special Grade Reef Sand - Grain Size 1.0 - 2.0 mm. This coarse sand is 100% aragonite and has excellent diffusive properties. A very versatile product, use in a deep or shallow beds. A significant denitrator when utilized in deeper beds or plenum systems.

Awesome sand Product Review by JOSH SMITH (Posted on 3/17/14)
Rating
Excellent!

Comments: I was debating between this sand and the Fiji pink, and I'm glad I went with this. This sand looks even better in person. It's just the right size and it doesn't get blown all over the tank with the power heads. You wont be disappointed.

Better to find locally Product Review by Goteenb (Posted on 2/26/14)

Comments: Once you add up the shipping cost/etc its better to find real live sand somewhere else. This is relatively coarse, and not the best for a DSB. Shipping this is also a risk as it might leak, as it did for me. MarineDepot did a great job replacing it without any hassles.

Excellent!

Comments: Just what I wanted! Very little cloudiness when I added the reef sand to the tank. I have two power heads for circulation and the water looks pristine.
