"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.

"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.

"Stick hose into bucket."

It looks really pretty and natural. One bag was enough to cover my standard 10 gallon tank. I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. Some people might have time to, but I do not. I love this substrate, I use it for my betta& goldfish tanks and it looks great. 10 weeks in and I have four tanks going.

"But its natural SAND."

Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. I love this substrate, I use it for my betta& goldfish tanks and it looks great. It's easy to clean and I didn't have an issue to floating particles. Very fine for sensitive bottom dwellers like Cory Cats. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. Will never use ugly waste trapping gravel again!

If you can keep your tank clean, this is perfect for you. I never did get around to switching to gravel. But I have to give it to this sand. I didn't have fish yet and decided just to chance it. The item is as pictured and described. I will need 3 more bags if I want a thicker 1 inch layer to fill my entire tank. It is beautiful and I'm thrilled with my purchase!

It looks really pretty and natural. But like everything else, you have to make choices and compromises. I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top. But like everything else, you have to make choices and compromises. It can shorten the life of your filter's impeller. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic.

"I hope it goes away soon."

Used to have a dark substrate but decided to change to this. It has cleared up but still a little cloudy. The item is as pictured and described. Darker sand still grows algae, but hides it. Mine play and frolic constantly, leaving happy little trails all over the tank. Very fine for sensitive bottom dwellers like Cory Cats. This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank.

"My fish was undisturbed."

I received this aquarium sand yesterday. Clear water, no chemical issues and makes the tank look sparkling clean. Just cleaned the 5 lbs in a 5 gal bucket in the bath tub. The soft sand makes it easy to place plants without damaging them. Do that over and over till the water finally is clear in the bucket. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. I think it's probably OK to use without any washing, as it says on the bag.

"You'll thank me later!"

I went ahead and used it without rinsing it, which was a mistake. If you can keep your tank clean, this is perfect for you. This sand is beautiful and incredibly soft! At that point rinse the sand a couple more times. I will need 3 more bags if I want a thicker 1 inch layer to fill my entire tank. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. Use the strongest, most focused nozzle you have.

"It worked like a charm."

It looks great and it's super quality. The sand does look nice and comes to you clean, it'll only take a minute to wash. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. But like everything else, you have to make choices and compromises. The grain size will range from fine to medium. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too.

"I really like this sand."

I purchased this to use on 2 20 gallon aquarium. Darker sand still grows algae, but hides it. The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. Except for and axolotl owner this Sand is veryyy hard to keep clean! If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. Will never use ugly waste trapping gravel again! The filter doesn't agitate the sand either.

I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on. No need to rinse before putting in aquarium. This is the ideal size, in my opinion, for most situations. The sand looks more natural and clean. Was frustrating but nobody's fault but mine. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. And it is not recommended that you rinse it out.

I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. Just cleaned the 5 lbs in a 5 gal bucket in the bath tub. The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. The sand does look nice and comes to you clean, it'll only take a minute to wash. 2 weeks later and my tank is still a little cloudy.

Use the strongest, most focused nozzle you have. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. I used to use the bigger gravel, but wanted to change it up. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. I bought the Torpedo Beach sand hoping for a pretty white sand and it was. Just don't dump the water in the drain as its bad if sand is stuck in the drains! A simple pass with a siphon hose removes most all of the waste.

My Corydoras are having a field day! Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! This sand is almost exactly like the beach in Destin, FL. Naturally, you will still want to start with hardy fish until the tank stabilizes.
