Well, disregard what others are saying about dead inverts arriving it your sand. "Live Sand," should not have any visible inverts in it, it should just have microscopic bacteria life that quickens your cycle of your reef tank.

Pros:

-Quick Cycle

Cons:

-Thick grains of sand
-Arrived Cold

Anyways... If you are ordering this product you should know what it is and how it should arrive, if you do not, you are not ready for this hobby. However, i will explain. This 5 pound bag is a great start for someone trying their luck at a pico aquarium (under 5 gallons), while only for the experienced hobbyist, they can be a lot of fun.

For me, the sand arrived cold due to poor packaging. This is a No-No and means that most if not all of the bacteria had died. However you do get a "bacteria starter mystery liquid looking thing" that comes with the sand. I would like to believe that it was real, but I really have no clue, it could just be some water.

I was also disappointed because this sand had quiet a bit of crushed coral in it, and was not as fine as I wanted. If you want fine sand, get a FIJI live sand. But, thats my fault for not researching it more.

Lastly, my cycle was completed in a record 10 days most likely due to the fact that I used live sand and live rock.

I bought this because my local aquarium store only sells live sand in 20lbs bags and higher. I have a 5 gal tank, and didn't want to waste 15lbs of live sand. The price for the 5lb bag on amazon was very reasonable, it arrived very quickly, and the sand looks great in my tank. After adding the biomagnet pouch that comes with the sand (and letting it sit over night) my water was crystal clear by morning. Very happy with my purchase.
