"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 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.

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.

YCTECH Final Thoughts

"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.

"Very good product."

The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. This is the ideal size, in my opinion, for most situations. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. This sand is nice and heavy, and has a nice shine to it. It looks really pretty and natural. Was frustrating but nobody's fault but mine. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems.

"Love love love love love!"

I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank. All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. For a Flounder tank, well, we will just have to see when they get here. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. There is a black sand from the same manufacturer called Tahitian Moon. It looks really pretty and natural. But if you want actual fine sand might not be what your looking for.

"HOW TO WASH SAND."

I think it's probably OK to use without any washing, as it says on the bag. The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. Cleaning it was easy and I just followed the directions on the bag. That is why I chose the Hydor Koralia Nano 240. All three are inert; therefore, they do not affect ph. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. Color in the pic looks pretty true to the real thing.

"Great product."

Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. This is a nice color of sand and looks good under the light. The item is as pictured and described. Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. My mystery snails and Malaysian trumpets love it too! Plant tanks require high light levels.

"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.

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.

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.

"Love it, great product."

I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. But I have to give it to this sand. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. Just cleaned the 5 lbs in a 5 gal bucket in the bath tub. Except for and axolotl owner this Sand is veryyy hard to keep clean!

Just cleaned the 5 lbs in a 5 gal bucket in the bath tub. I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank. Have a seat and shoot the water with force down into the sand. I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. The sand does look nice and comes to you clean, it'll only take a minute to wash.
