CaribSea Dry Aragonite Special Grade Reef Sand Information



Part #: 00020

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 Product Review by Fred Oehmke (Posted on 3/26/14)
Rating
Excellent!

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.

Great!

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

Good Stuff Product Review by DIANA B. (Posted on 2/26/14)

Excellent!

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 *****

Unsatisfactory

Comments: Thought it would be a smaller size grade, looks like crushed coral which I already have.

Great Reef Sand Product Review by Stephen Shelton (Posted on 9/13/12)

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!
