"No harm to the fish."

When adding water, no dust, no mess. This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank. That is why I chose the Hydor Koralia Nano 240. A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. I was nervous about converting my freshwater tank substrate from gravel to sand. Some people might have time to, but I do not. The grain size will range from fine to medium.

Hamiledyi Final Thoughts

"4 lb bags."

Perfect sand, I didn't bother rinsing or cleaning it like the directions said. The filter doesn't agitate the sand either. You probably need more if you are planning on planting live plants. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. Color in the pic looks pretty true to the real thing. A bit beige mixed with white, but the crystals are still very pretty. My goldfish seems much happier and will dig and siphon the sand.

"HOW TO WASH SAND."

I think it's probably OK to use without any washing, as it says on the bag. The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. Cleaning it was easy and I just followed the directions on the bag. That is why I chose the Hydor Koralia Nano 240. All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. Color in the pic looks pretty true to the real thing.

"Great product."

Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. This is a nice color of sand and looks good under the light. The item is as pictured and described. Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. My mystery snails and Malaysian trumpets love it too! Plant tanks require high light levels.

"Yes, its grey not black."

I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. Dont force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! My Corydoras are having a field day! Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day.

"Highly recommend."

The water was clear by the next day. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. Plants are easy to plant in it as well. They keep the surface of my sand looking pretty and white. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. I've had it in my aquarium now for just about 24 hours and cycling. Not too white, more a beige-grey color.

"I hope it goes away soon."

I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. I still love it and maybe will return to it someday after my aquarium is settled in. The soft sand makes it easy to place plants without damaging them. Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand. If you get this sand rinse it, I cannot stress that enough, rinse it. If you can keep your tank clean, this is perfect for you. My beautiful sand turned a very dark brown.

"Just some dust."

Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. This is a nice color of sand and looks good under the light. This is the easiest sand and gravel I've ever cleaned. You probably need more if you are planning on planting live plants. Worried about my newts underbelly but he seems okay with it. Take my advice, which I got from someone else, and buy a mini gravel vacuum. A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off.

"Will purchase again."

But if you want actual fine sand might not be what your looking for. All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. I used about 9 lbs in my 5 gallon tank, since I wanted a deep substrate layer. I didn't have fish yet and decided just to chance it. But that is also something to consider with all sands. I have a 50 gallon established freshwater tank. But that is also something to consider with all sands.

"Oh, and one other thing."

The filter we used was also established with bacteria from the former tank setup. It looks great and it's super quality. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. Dont force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! This is the ideal size, in my opinion, for most situations. You probably need more if you are planning on planting live plants. Take my advice, which I got from someone else, and buy a mini gravel vacuum.

"There's been zero issues."

Just cleaned the 5 lbs in a 5 gal bucket in the bath tub. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. I used to use the bigger gravel, but wanted to change it up. Dont force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. I thought it was soap, but it's not.

A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. But like everything else, you have to make choices and compromises. Just be smarter than me about it and you'll be very happy with the product. There is a black sand from the same manufacturer called Tahitian Moon. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. But I have to give it to this sand. My mystery snails and Malaysian trumpets love it too!

"Plants love it!"

One bag was enough to cover my standard 10 gallon tank. But I have to give it to this sand. The other comes packed pre-cultured with nitrifying bacteria. This sand is almost exactly like the beach in Destin, FL. 10 weeks in and I have four tanks going. There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. This sand is nice and heavy, and has a nice shine to it.

I received this aquarium sand yesterday. The other comes packed pre-cultured with nitrifying bacteria. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. Worried about my newts underbelly but he seems okay with it. There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank. This is the easiest sand and gravel I've ever cleaned.

"This sand is very light."

I added my snail and fish within about 12 hours and everyone is happy. This was a very nice sand and I enjoyed it very much! This could very well be the perfect substrate, except for one thing. Naturally, you will still want to start with hardy fish until the tank stabilizes. Not as thin as sand but works well for our musk turtle substrate. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. I thought it was soap, but it's not.

"Shrimp tank."

Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand. It helped the water clear up faster. My beautiful sand turned a very dark brown. I bought the Sunset Gold color and it is a beautiful sand. You probably need more if you are planning on planting live plants. The Estes sand came highly recommended. For a Flounder tank, well, we will just have to see when they get here.

"Worked beautifully."

Clear water, no chemical issues and makes the tank look sparkling clean. The filter doesn't agitate the sand either. Plants are easy to plant in it as well. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on. The Estes sand came highly recommended. And it is not recommended that you rinse it out. It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes.
