"Love the look!"

The sand does look nice and comes to you clean, it'll only take a minute to wash. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on. I decided that I'll keep the sand after all. Plant tanks require high light levels. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. Just don't dump the water in the drain as its bad if sand is stuck in the drains! The Estes sand came highly recommended.

LONDAFISH Final Thoughts

"Overall I'm a fan."

Dont force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. Not as thin as sand but works well for our musk turtle substrate. It can shorten the life of your filter's impeller. You'll be shocked at the fine particles that come out! A simple pass with a siphon hose removes most all of the waste. I went ahead and used it without rinsing it, which was a mistake.

"Make sure you rinse it."

The sand looks more natural and clean. But if you want actual fine sand might not be what your looking for. I have a 50 gallon established freshwater tank. It looks great and it's super quality. The other comes packed pre-cultured with nitrifying bacteria. This could very well be the perfect substrate, except for one thing. The bag is small, but the quality of sand is good.

"RINSE VERY WELL!"

Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. 2 weeks later and my tank is still a little cloudy. Plant tanks require high light levels. Just don't dump the water in the drain as its bad if sand is stuck in the drains! Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand. All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. Plants are easy to plant in it as well.

"But its natural SAND."

I purchased this to use on 2 20 gallon aquarium. It has cleared up but still a little cloudy. Dont force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. It has cleared up but still a little cloudy. The water was clear by the next day.

Carib Sea First Impressions

"I just love it!"

Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank. The bag is small, but the quality of sand is good. If you can keep your tank clean, this is perfect for you. It can shorten the life of your filter's impeller. That is why I chose the Hydor Koralia Nano 240. It is slightly finer and it hides algae very well.

"Won't go back to gravel!"

The Estes sand came highly recommended. Within the bag, you will find two small packets. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. I used this sand in my 30gallon and put it into a 6. I added my snail and fish within about 12 hours and everyone is happy. I still love it and maybe will return to it someday after my aquarium is settled in. A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off.

"Make sure you rinse it."

Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. Plants are easy to plant in it as well. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day. If you are slack on maintenance, pick a darker sand. Color in the pic looks pretty true to the real thing. The filter doesn't agitate the sand either.

"A REALLY LOT."

Naturally, you will still want to start with hardy fish until the tank stabilizes. I think it's probably OK to use without any washing, as it says on the bag. It looks really pretty and natural. The light color is really pretty and makes it easy to spot various critters. All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. Perfect sand, I didn't bother rinsing or cleaning it like the directions said. I bought the Sunset Gold color and it is a beautiful sand.

"It was ridiculous."

Some people might have time to, but I do not. It's what I did with the sand I had left over that I'm using in my smaller tank. I added my snail and fish within about 12 hours and everyone is happy. If it clears up I'll try to remember to do an update review. Used to have a dark substrate but decided to change to this. My goldfish seems much happier and will dig and siphon the sand. Darker sand still grows algae, but hides it.

"I am so happy I did!"

I used about 9 lbs in my 5 gallon tank, since I wanted a deep substrate layer. Not too white, more a beige-grey color. Perfect sand, I didn't bother rinsing or cleaning it like the directions said. My Corydoras are having a field day! It's easy to clean and I didn't have an issue to floating particles. This sand is almost exactly like the beach in Destin, FL. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it.

"I love the color!"

The filter we used was also established with bacteria from the former tank setup. My Corydoras are having a field day! If you are slack on maintenance, pick a darker sand. I purchased this to use on 2 20 gallon aquarium. For a Flounder tank, well, we will just have to see when they get here. My beautiful sand turned a very dark brown. I still love it and maybe will return to it someday after my aquarium is settled in.

"Repeated 3-4 times."

At that point rinse the sand a couple more times. It's what I did with the sand I had left over that I'm using in my smaller tank. Love the way it looks in my new aquarium. My goldfish seems much happier and will dig and siphon the sand. Mine play and frolic constantly, leaving happy little trails all over the tank. If I remember correctly, it's normal for new sand to do this. Plant tanks require high light levels.
