"Worked beautifully."

Do that over and over till the water finally is clear in the bucket. Highly recommend, found out about it on YouTube. If you are slack on maintenance, pick a darker sand. I used it in my fire bellied toad enclosure, it is cloudy but that's expected. I bought 80 lbs of this sand for my 75 gallon fish tank. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. I have a 50 gallon established freshwater tank.

"I really like this sand."

I used this sand in my 30gallon and put it into a 6. Plants are easy to plant in it as well. If I remember correctly, it's normal for new sand to do this. 10 weeks in and I have four tanks going. I received this aquarium sand yesterday. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank.

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.

"I really like this sand."

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.

I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. Dont force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! My Corydoras are having a field day! Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day.

The water was clear by the next day. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. Plants are easy to plant in it as well.

"Plants love it!"

If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day. Clear water, no chemical issues and makes the tank look sparkling clean. Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. If you have bright lights, algae will grow on this sand. I will need 3 more bags if I want a thicker 1 inch layer to fill my entire tank. Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium.

"More like micro gravel."

It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes. There is a black sand from the same manufacturer called Tahitian Moon. The water was clear by the next day. Clear water, no chemical issues and makes the tank look sparkling clean. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. Just don't dump the water in the drain as its bad if sand is stuck in the drains! It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes.

"You'll thank me later!"

Do that over and over till the water finally is clear in the bucket. A bit beige mixed with white, but the crystals are still very pretty. Naturally, you will still want to start with hardy fish until the tank stabilizes. Not as thin as sand but works well for our musk turtle substrate. I was nervous about converting my freshwater tank substrate from gravel to sand. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. This filled a fair thin layer over half my elongated 35 gallon tank.

"It is to be expected."

The point is, discus and rams do not appreciate getting buffeted. It helped the water clear up faster. My Corydoras are having a field day! Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. Take my advice, which I got from someone else, and buy a mini gravel vacuum. When adding water, no dust, no mess.

"So yes the sand is dusty!"

Not as thin as sand but works well for our musk turtle substrate. 2 weeks later and my tank is still a little cloudy. Darker sand still grows algae, but hides it. The filter doesn't agitate the sand either. This is the ideal size, in my opinion, for most situations. Perfect sand, I didn't bother rinsing or cleaning it like the directions said. I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times.

"But its natural SAND."

There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. I never did get around to switching to gravel. I never did get around to switching to gravel. It looks really pretty and natural. My beautiful sand turned a very dark brown. I thought it was soap, but it's not. The bio magnet clarifier clears the water up at first, but then it gets cloudy again.

"The sand is nice."

This sand is almost exactly like the beach in Destin, FL. The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. Good thing I'm not in a rush so it will have time to settle. Kind of sharp sand, not the soft smooth kind. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. Dont force yourself to look at a boring bare bottom tank! Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand.

"I really like it!"

Plants are easy to plant in it as well. But that is also something to consider with all sands. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. The sand does look nice and comes to you clean, it'll only take a minute to wash. I bought the Sunset Gold color and it is a beautiful sand. It looks great and it's super quality. Love the way it looks in my new aquarium.
