"Repeated 3-4 times."

I decided that I'll keep the sand after all. Use the strongest, most focused nozzle you have. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day. The sand causes bubbles to remain on top of the water too. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. I never did get around to switching to gravel. This was a very nice sand and I enjoyed it very much!

Worldwide Imports 29615 Final Thoughts

"I love the color!"

If you get this sand rinse it, I cannot stress that enough, rinse it. The item is as pictured and described. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it. It's as close to white sand as you can get! Come to find out the sand is somewhat dirty. The light color is really pretty and makes it easy to spot various critters. I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top.

"Overall I'm a fan."

I received this aquarium sand yesterday. The other comes packed pre-cultured with nitrifying bacteria. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. Worried about my newts underbelly but he seems okay with it. There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank. This is the easiest sand and gravel I've ever cleaned.

"This sand is very light."

I added my snail and fish within about 12 hours and everyone is happy. This was a very nice sand and I enjoyed it very much! This could very well be the perfect substrate, except for one thing. 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 have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. I thought it was soap, but it's not.

"No harm to the fish."

But that is also something to consider with all sands. I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top. It's what I did with the sand I had left over that I'm using in my smaller tank. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. There is a black sand from the same manufacturer called Tahitian Moon. The point is, discus and rams do not appreciate getting buffeted.

"Nice touch."

Darker sand still grows algae, but hides it. This sand is beautiful and incredibly soft! The grain size will range from fine to medium. A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. But I have to give it to this sand. I purchased this to use on 2 20 gallon aquarium. I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms.

"A REALLY LOT."

The point is, discus and rams do not appreciate getting buffeted. 10 weeks in and I have four tanks going. Plants are easy to plant in it as well. If it clears up I'll try to remember to do an update review. It can shorten the life of your filter's impeller. The item is as pictured and described. Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice!

"Stick hose into bucket."

I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank. Darker sand still grows algae, but hides it. It can shorten the life of your filter's impeller. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. If it clears up I'll try to remember to do an update review. I bought 80 lbs of this sand for my 75 gallon fish tank.

"Really good sand."

This sand is nice and heavy, and has a nice shine to it. But I have to give it to this sand. The Estes sand came highly recommended. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. But like everything else, you have to make choices and compromises. I bought it primarily because I purchased five assassin snails and the love sand. Will never use ugly waste trapping gravel again!

"WHAT A MESS!"

Except for and axolotl owner this Sand is veryyy hard to keep clean! If you have bright lights, algae will grow on this sand. If you get this sand rinse it, I cannot stress that enough, rinse it. I've had it in my aquarium now for just about 24 hours and cycling. Plant tanks require high light levels. Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. Clear water, no chemical issues and makes the tank look sparkling clean.

Worldwide Imports 29609 First Impressions

"Stick hose into bucket."

I did lots of research on the subject and decided to make the leap. I like the extra little packet of bio-magnet clarifier. I added my snail and fish within about 12 hours and everyone is happy. I used to use the bigger gravel, but wanted to change it up. We used regular tap water and water from our main tank. Not as thin as sand but works well for our musk turtle substrate. At that point rinse the sand a couple more times.

"Beautiful aquarium sand."

Then swirled and dumped what didn't sink immediately. Dumped sand in bucket and let water overflow get rid of the floating stuff. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. The other contains a floculant, to help clear cloudy water. I like the extra little packet of bio-magnet clarifier. Plant tanks require high light levels. Not too white, more a beige-grey color.

"Somewhat tricky to clean."

I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top. I have yet to do a water change, but I do not anticipate any problems. It is beautiful and I'm thrilled with my purchase! Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea. It's easy to clean and I didn't have an issue to floating particles. I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank.

"They love it so far!"

It is slightly finer and it hides algae very well. The other comes packed pre-cultured with nitrifying bacteria. I was nervous about converting my freshwater tank substrate from gravel to sand. The water was clear by the next day. I bought the Torpedo Beach sand hoping for a pretty white sand and it was. Almost like a sparkle, but not bright. I rinsed each bag separately and skimmed the small amount that floated to the top.

"No issues."

I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. One bag was enough to cover my standard 10 gallon tank. I like the extra little packet of bio-magnet clarifier. Like I said earlier, it's like beach sand. I used to use the bigger gravel, but wanted to change it up. A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. I love this substrate, I use it for my betta& goldfish tanks and it looks great.

"Hope this helps!"

A simple pass with a siphon hose removes most all of the waste. Take my advice, which I got from someone else, and buy a mini gravel vacuum. I bought it primarily because I purchased five assassin snails and the love sand. I put the 5 pounds of sand straight into an empty 5 gallon tank. I bought the Sunset Gold color and it is a beautiful sand. But like everything else, you have to make choices and compromises. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water.

"Fantastic sand."

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. It's absolutely beautiful and I'm very pleased with it. That is why I chose the Hydor Koralia Nano 240. Used to have a dark substrate but decided to change to this. Love the way it looks in my new aquarium.

"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.

"Really good stuff."

Naturally, you will still want to start with hardy fish until the tank stabilizes. The grain size will range from fine to medium. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. The bio magnet clarifier clears the water up at first, but then it gets cloudy again. If I remember correctly, it's normal for new sand to do this. But I have to give it to this sand. I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead.

"Good Luck!"

Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! I toss the cloudy water into the streets instead. I'm probably only going to use this brand from now on. Half of the bag was more than enough for my aquarium. A bit more floated to the top, skimmed it off. Poured water in, ran the filter for a day. Good thing I'm not in a rush so it will have time to settle.
