"Hope this helps!"

My aquarium was so beautiful with this sand! I will need 3 more bags if I want a thicker 1 inch layer to fill my entire tank. I bought it primarily because I purchased five assassin snails and the love sand. This sand is beautiful and incredibly soft! Perfect sand, I didn't bother rinsing or cleaning it like the directions said. This torpedo beach sand is wonderful. It is slightly finer and it hides algae very well.

POPETPOP 37902QHKZM17AB Final Thoughts

"Plants love it!"

I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. It helped the water clear up faster. If you can keep your tank clean, this is perfect for you. I decided that I'll keep the sand after all. A simple pass with a siphon hose removes most all of the waste. Then swirled and dumped what didn't sink immediately. Kind of sharp sand, not the soft smooth kind.

"The sand is nice."

Do that over and over till the water finally is clear in the bucket. The point is, discus and rams do not appreciate getting buffeted. The sand arrived dry, I'm still unclear if that's how it was supposed to arrive. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. It has cleared up but still a little cloudy. Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. Kind of sharp sand, not the soft smooth kind.

"LOVE THE SAND!"

A simple pass with a siphon hose removes most all of the waste. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. I used to use the bigger gravel, but wanted to change it up. I was nervous about converting my freshwater tank substrate from gravel to sand. I bought it primarily because I purchased five assassin snails and the love sand.

"Really good stuff."

The sand looks more natural and clean. I decided that I'll keep the sand after all. For a Flounder tank, well, we will just have to see when they get here.

"This is a nice size sand."

It's what I did with the sand I had left over that I'm using in my smaller tank. It looks great and it's super quality. My mystery snails and Malaysian trumpets love it too! My beautiful sand turned a very dark brown. The point is, discus and rams do not appreciate getting buffeted. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. But that is also something to consider with all sands.

"It is a very fine sand."

Perfect sand, I didn't bother rinsing or cleaning it like the directions said. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank.

"No harm to the filters."

This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank. When adding water, no dust, no mess. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand.

"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.

"It is to be expected."

You probably need more if you are planning on planting live plants. The sand arrived dry, I'm still unclear if that's how it was supposed to arrive. I used about 9 lbs in my 5 gallon tank, since I wanted a deep substrate layer. I went ahead and used it without rinsing it, which was a mistake. I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on. I added my snail and fish within about 12 hours and everyone is happy.

I received this aquarium sand yesterday. I went ahead and used it without rinsing it, which was a mistake. This torpedo beach sand is wonderful. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. My mystery snails and Malaysian trumpets love it too! I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it.

Love the way it looks in my new aquarium. The water was clear by the next day. The filter we used was also established with bacteria from the former tank setup.

"A REALLY LOT."

I will need 3 more bags if I want a thicker 1 inch layer to fill my entire tank. I received this aquarium sand yesterday. I purchased this to use on 2 20 gallon aquarium. Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. It helped the water clear up faster. But like everything else, you have to make choices and compromises. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it.

I purchased this to use on 2 20 gallon aquarium. You really can't go wrong buying this sand! The other comes packed pre-cultured with nitrifying bacteria. You really can't go wrong buying this sand! All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. One bag was enough to cover my standard 10 gallon tank. There is a black sand from the same manufacturer called Tahitian Moon.

This is the easiest sand and gravel I've ever cleaned. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. Plants are easy to plant in it as well. If it clears up I'll try to remember to do an update review. This sand is nice and heavy, and has a nice shine to it. My goldfish seems much happier and will dig and siphon the sand. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead.

"Really good sand."

If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. It's as close to white sand as you can get! I used to use the bigger gravel, but wanted to change it up. I received this aquarium sand yesterday. Use the strongest, most focused nozzle you have. I bought the Sunset Gold color and it is a beautiful sand.
