"This is a nice size 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. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. Worried about my newts underbelly but he seems okay with it. It looks great and it's super quality.

PERSUPER Final Thoughts

"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.

"Like go overboard."

This could very well be the perfect substrate, except for one thing. Worried about my newts underbelly but he seems okay with it. I bought it primarily because I purchased five assassin snails and the love sand. This is the ideal size, in my opinion, for most situations. Just cleaned the 5 lbs in a 5 gal bucket in the bath tub. A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. No need to rinse before putting in aquarium.

"Worked beautifully."

Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. Use the strongest, most focused nozzle you have. Within the bag, you will find two small packets. Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. I bought the Torpedo Beach sand hoping for a pretty white sand and it was. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes.

"4 lb bags."

It is slightly finer and it hides algae very well. It can shorten the life of your filter's impeller. It can shorten the life of your filter's impeller. The filter doesn't agitate the sand either. You'll be shocked at the fine particles that come out! Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. If you are slack on maintenance, pick a darker sand.

"He digs holes."

Mine play and frolic constantly, leaving happy little trails all over the tank. If you have bright lights, algae will grow on this sand. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. I didn't have fish yet and decided just to chance it. If you get this sand rinse it, I cannot stress that enough, rinse it. This torpedo beach sand is wonderful.

"This sand is gorgeous!"

A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. Will never use ugly waste trapping gravel again! Worried about my newts underbelly but he seems okay with it. I have a 50 gallon established freshwater tank. Then swirled and dumped what didn't sink immediately. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank.

"It looks nice overall."

My Corydoras are having a field day! When adding water, no dust, no mess. I went ahead and used it without rinsing it, which was a mistake. The sand arrived dry, I'm still unclear if that's how it was supposed to arrive. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. Used to have a dark substrate but decided to change to this. It helped the water clear up faster.

"Love love love love love!"

You'll be shocked at the fine particles that come out! It's as close to white sand as you can get! This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank. Love the way it looks in my new aquarium. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. But that is also something to consider with all sands.

"Very good product."

I received this aquarium sand yesterday. Used to have a dark substrate but decided to change to this. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. It helped the water clear up faster. Cleaning it was easy and I just followed the directions on the bag. Not as thin as sand but works well for our musk turtle substrate. Just don't dump the water in the drain as its bad if sand is stuck in the drains!

"Beautiful aquarium sand."

I bought the Torpedo Beach sand hoping for a pretty white sand and it was. Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. It is slightly finer and it hides algae very well. Just be smarter than me about it and you'll be very happy with the product. It's what I did with the sand I had left over that I'm using in my smaller tank. This was a very nice sand and I enjoyed it very much! I used about 9 lbs in my 5 gallon tank, since I wanted a deep substrate layer.
