"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.

"He digs holes."

The other comes packed pre-cultured with nitrifying bacteria. Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. There is a black sand from the same manufacturer called Tahitian Moon. Very fine for sensitive bottom dwellers like Cory Cats. They keep the surface of my sand looking pretty and white. I thought it was soap, but it's not. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead.

"Shrimp tank."

This could very well be the perfect substrate, except for one thing. I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. This sand is beautiful and incredibly soft! There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. If you have bright lights, algae will grow on this sand. The sand looks more natural and clean. I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top.

"No harm to the filters."

It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it. Not as thin as sand but works well for our musk turtle substrate. I still love it and maybe will return to it someday after my aquarium is settled in. Cleaning it was easy and I just followed the directions on the bag.

"Bottom line."

Just don't dump the water in the drain as its bad if sand is stuck in the drains! And it is not recommended that you rinse it out. Not too white, more a beige-grey color. This sand is nice and heavy, and has a nice shine to it. I still love it and maybe will return to it someday after my aquarium is settled in. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand.

This was a very nice sand and I enjoyed it very much! A bit beige mixed with white, but the crystals are still very pretty. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water.

"I really like this sand."

10 weeks in and I have four tanks going. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. It's easy to clean and I didn't have an issue to floating particles. But that is also something to consider with all sands. This is a nice color of sand and looks good under the light. They keep the surface of my sand looking pretty and white.

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.

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.

"WHAT A MESS!"

Except for and axolotl owner this Sand is veryyy hard to keep clean! If you have bright lights, algae will grow on this sand. If you get this sand rinse it, I cannot stress that enough, rinse it. I've had it in my aquarium now for just about 24 hours and cycling. Plant tanks require high light levels. Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. Clear water, no chemical issues and makes the tank look sparkling clean.

This sand is beautiful and incredibly soft! Plant tanks require high light levels. My Corydoras are having a field day! If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank. Then swirled and dumped what didn't sink immediately. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on.
