"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.

JZMYXA Final Thoughts

"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.

"It cleans fairly well."

It is beautiful and I'm thrilled with my purchase! My Corydoras are having a field day! I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. Was frustrating but nobody's fault but mine. I used to use the bigger gravel, but wanted to change it up. My goldfish seems much happier and will dig and siphon the sand. I have a 50 gallon established freshwater tank.

JZMYXA Final Thoughts

"This is a nice size sand."

But I have to give it to this sand. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. This sand is almost exactly like the beach in Destin, FL. It has cleared up but still a little cloudy. I have a 50 gallon established freshwater tank. I was nervous about converting my freshwater tank substrate from gravel to sand. The water was clear by the next day.

"Won't go back to gravel!"

Then swirled and dumped what didn't sink immediately. No need to rinse before putting in aquarium. The other contains a floculant, to help clear cloudy water. Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! The bag is small, but the quality of sand is good. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top.

"HOW TO WASH SAND."

I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. Highly recommend, found out about it on YouTube. I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. My beautiful sand turned a very dark brown. This is a nice color of sand and looks good under the light. It has cleared up but still a little cloudy. Kind of sharp sand, not the soft smooth kind.

Carib Sea First Impressions

"You'll thank me later!"

Do that over and over till the water finally is clear in the bucket. A bit beige mixed with white, but the crystals are still very pretty. 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 was nervous about converting my freshwater tank substrate from gravel to sand. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank.

"It is to be expected."

The point is, discus and rams do not appreciate getting buffeted. It helped the water clear up faster. My Corydoras are having a field day! Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. Take my advice, which I got from someone else, and buy a mini gravel vacuum. When adding water, no dust, no mess.

"The algae will die off."

Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. I decided that I'll keep the sand after all. Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! The other contains a floculant, to help clear cloudy water. I used this sand in my 30gallon and put it into a 6.

"Highly recommended."

If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. The grain size will range from fine to medium. Do that over and over till the water finally is clear in the bucket. I have a 50 gallon established freshwater tank. The grain size will range from fine to medium. 2 weeks later and my tank is still a little cloudy. The filter doesn't agitate the sand either.

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.

"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.

"Highly recommend."

I used this sand in my 30gallon and put it into a 6. The soft sand makes it easy to place plants without damaging them. Use the strongest, most focused nozzle you have. Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand. I will need 3 more bags if I want a thicker 1 inch layer to fill my entire tank. I bought the Sunset Gold color and it is a beautiful sand. It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes.

"I hope it goes away soon."

I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank. Plant tanks require high light levels. Cleaning it was easy and I just followed the directions on the bag. There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. No need to rinse before putting in aquarium. You probably need more if you are planning on planting live plants. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on.

"So far so good."

Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. Was frustrating but nobody's fault but mine.
