"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.

2. Carib Sea ACS00854 Rio Grande Sand for Aquarium, 50-Pound

Carib Sea 008479008541 First Impressions

"He digs holes."

Used to have a dark substrate but decided to change to this. I like the extra little packet of bio-magnet clarifier. If I remember correctly, it's normal for new sand to do this. I still love it and maybe will return to it someday after my aquarium is settled in. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. That is why I chose the Hydor Koralia Nano 240.

"You can see in photos."

There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. The light color is really pretty and makes it easy to spot various critters. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. Mine play and frolic constantly, leaving happy little trails all over the tank. There is a black sand from the same manufacturer called Tahitian Moon. Mine play and frolic constantly, leaving happy little trails all over the tank. Color in the pic looks pretty true to the real thing.

It looks great and it's super quality. It looks really pretty and natural. Color in the pic looks pretty true to the real thing. I went ahead and used it without rinsing it, which was a mistake.

"Get an unused bucket."

The sand looks more natural and clean. At that point rinse the sand a couple more times. The filter we used was also established with bacteria from the former tank setup. It is slightly finer and it hides algae very well. Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! If you get this sand rinse it, I cannot stress that enough, rinse it. The bag is small, but the quality of sand is good.

"But its natural SAND."

I didn't have fish yet and decided just to chance it. If you can keep your tank clean, this is perfect for you. The Estes sand came highly recommended. This torpedo beach sand is wonderful. I never did get around to switching to gravel. I went ahead and used it without rinsing it, which was a mistake. I used about 9 lbs in my 5 gallon tank, since I wanted a deep substrate layer.

"Get an unused bucket."

A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. Was frustrating but nobody's fault but mine. It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes. Except for and axolotl owner this Sand is veryyy hard to keep clean! I think it's probably OK to use without any washing, as it says on the bag. It has cleared up but still a little cloudy.

Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand. The filter doesn't agitate the sand either. My aquarium was so beautiful with this sand!

I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate.

If you can keep your tank clean, this is perfect for you. 10 weeks in and I have four tanks going. But if you want actual fine sand might not be what your looking for. It looks really pretty and natural. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. I decided that I'll keep the sand after all. You probably need more if you are planning on planting live plants.

"Plants love it!"

It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it. I used about 9 lbs in my 5 gallon tank, since I wanted a deep substrate layer. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. No need to rinse before putting in aquarium. It is slightly finer and it hides algae very well. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank.

I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. The light color is really pretty and makes it easy to spot various critters. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. But if you want actual fine sand might not be what your looking for. 2 weeks later and my tank is still a little cloudy. My goldfish seems much happier and will dig and siphon the sand. When adding water, no dust, no mess.

"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.

"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!

"They love it!"

I didn't have fish yet and decided just to chance it. Do that over and over till the water finally is clear in the bucket. This is a nice color of sand and looks good under the light. All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. If you get this sand rinse it, I cannot stress that enough, rinse it. The sand arrived dry, I'm still unclear if that's how it was supposed to arrive. One bag was enough to cover my standard 10 gallon tank.

"Worked beautifully."

It's what I did with the sand I had left over that I'm using in my smaller tank. Some people might have time to, but I do not. My Corydoras are having a field day! But I have to give it to this sand. The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day. Naturally, you will still want to start with hardy fish until the tank stabilizes.

"I really like it!"

Darker sand still grows algae, but hides it. The point is, discus and rams do not appreciate getting buffeted. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank. I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on.
