CaribSea Dry Aragonite Special Grade Reef Sand 15 lb Information



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.

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 *****

Quality Fine Grain Aragonite Product Review by JOHN THOMPSON (Posted on 6/7/12)

Excellent!

Comments: Exactly as described. Perfect size grains for deep sand bed. It may be a little too fine for the main display if you have a lot of water movement. I am using it in a refugium. In my opion I would not pay extra for the "live sand" in a bag that is being sold. That stuff is another passing gimick preying on the misinformed. This product will have all the bacteria necessary in due time and it is a better value.

Exceptional Quality Sand Product Review by TUFFY6969 (Posted on 4/28/12)

Excellent!

Comments: This sand is exceptional. I was just snorkling / diving in Hawaii and this side is identical to the sand found on the reefs and near the walls. The fish thrive in this size and texture of sand. I've seen it first hand! I will not be using any other sand for my substrate.
