Rated 5 out of 5 by Papawillie The best multi-purpose sand
I use this in all my tanks. Some people complain that it is difficult to rinse...if you rinse it in smaller quantities (10 lbs or less) it rinses relatively easily. Let it settle in your filled tank for a day or so. Good for FOLR and reef.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aquanut59 Great substrate
I having been buying this substrate for start-ups and doing replenish/replacements of my substrate. It has just enough fines for my wrasses and is coarse enough for bio action. It is all I use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob11 Great sand for reef
This product is excellent for those who has reef system with stronger wavemaker like Vortech like I have. Each substrate has good size and weight. Thus, it won't create sand storm with stronger waves. With good depth of the sand, it is easy to secure corals, for example, torch coral, candy canes, etc,. on the bottom. In addition due to the weight, it is easy to siphon the bottom. You don't need to worry about getting substrates in the bucket too much. Yet this substrates are small enough for leopard wrasse and other wrasses to sleep in at night. Highly recommended product! By the way, please make sure to rinse it prior to using it. Otherwise, they would cloud your tank for weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by surf4life Nice grain size for high flow tanks
My tank was running bare bottom for some time because there was much flow and didn't want a sand storm covering my corals. I'd read positive reviews about this sand and decided to try it. I'm very satisfied and like the look of having something covering the bottom and just finished adding a clean up crew.
I'd recommend this as a good choice for high flow tanks and aside from rinsing it in rodi water before adding to the tank it was pretty easy and clean. My water cleared in about a day and things are looking nice.
