Tahitian Moon Reef and Marine Substrate 20 lbs
Beautiful, fine-grain, solid black sand. Looks great and really makes a strong contrast for colorful marine life.

This sand is beautiful and easy to clean. I don't have a single negative remark to make about it. You won't regret this purchase.

Very attractive appearance. Lots of compliments.
I bought this product because I wanted to darken the white aragonite reef sand in my 60 gallon cichlid tank. As with all sand I recommend rinsing before use to eliminate cloudiness and potential damage to pumps. Rinsing probably eliminates any "biological" advantage. Buffering and pH were not affected. The cichlids interact with the sand normally and do appear to have more color with a darker substrate. I am very pleased with the appearance of the black and white sand mix. I think the Tahitian Moon Reef sand would look great by itself, however my tank needed the buffering effect of aragonite reef sand.

I used this substrate for my 20 long freshwater tank. I rinsed the first bag but not the second. There was absolutely no difference. I used the clarifier and placed a saucer on the sand when I poured in the water. There was never any cloudiness or floating particles.
The plants are growing well and were easy to place in the substrate. I will happily use this produce again and again.
