Carib Sea 008479058201 First Impressions

This sand is very fine.

If I remember correctly, it's normal for new sand to do this. Doing that it should be clean enough to put in your tank and not cloud up your water. I bought the Sunset Gold color and it is a beautiful sand. I love this substrate, I use it for my betta& goldfish tanks and it looks great. Used to have a dark substrate but decided to change to this. If you have bright lights, algae will grow on this sand. There are two versions of the Crystal River Sand from Caribsea.

Carib Sea 008479058201 Final Thoughts

This sand looks great!

And it is not recommended that you rinse it out. If you are starting a new tank, this is the one that I would recommend. Really nice appearance in the tank, looks very authentic. I'm setting up another tank and this will be the substrate. Some will leave the tank when you get rid of unwanted plants too. Bought this 50lbs bag for my 55g freshwater aquarium, boy is the white sand nice! I bought it primarily because I purchased five assassin snails and the love sand.
