Pettex 4014 First Impressions

You'll thank me later!

I unloaded it into a bucket and continued to rinse several times. I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms. Cleaning it was easy and I just followed the directions on the bag. The sand does look nice and comes to you clean, it'll only take a minute to wash. This was a very nice sand and I enjoyed it very much! It helps eliminate deadly ammonia spikes. I love this substrate, I use it for my betta& goldfish tanks and it looks great.

Pettex 4014 Final Thoughts

Repeated 3-4 times.

Plants are easy to plant in it as well. I've had it in my aquarium now for just about 24 hours and cycling. It helped the water clear up faster. This sand is nice and heavy, and has a nice shine to it. Just don't dump the water in the drain as its bad if sand is stuck in the drains! I still love it and maybe will return to it someday after my aquarium is settled in. I found that red cherry shrimp adore diatoms.
