Freshwater Sand Substrate 9/2/2013
First off, I love how it looks and the price is great.
But it is very fine and get suked into the cleaning tube everytime I clean the tank. And it has gotten into the filter which is causing the impellar to act up noisily. I had to remove my sponge filter because it just kept becoming saturated iwith the fine grains n a short amount of time. My plants, which were doing phenominal in gravel, are so so in the sand and their roots become exposed easily. At this point I am not sure if I am going to put the gravel back or mix them, but by itself, I am not happy with sand except for the athestics.

Love this sand. i didn't even rinse it, just put it straight in the tank. it took a few days to really settle in, but that is okay as i was fishless cycling and had nothing to look at. Now after over a year with this sand, it grows plants wonderfully.
Didn't like it. 2/18/2013
The sand is very fine, like silt.. Rinsed it several times and still clouded up the tank and found lots of it in the bottom of my filter. Is not truly white. I added to my already white fine grain sand and the color difference was notable.
helps make the tank beauiful. 5/2/2012
I replaced my gravel with this sand to give my fish something softer to hover above. my corydoras,crawdad and driftwood cat love it. easier to clean the water as well.
