Product Description

You can now bring the world's most exotic reefs into your home with CaribSea's Arag-Alive substrates. It is developed from CaribSea's cooperation with public aquariums and zoological parks, where authenticity is a must. Arag-Alive helps maintain a proper pH for the life of your aquarium without the constant addition of chemicals, and creates a biological balance to discourage nuisance algae. Arag-Alive contains millions of bacteria per pound specially engineered for aggressive waste reduction in closed systems like your aquarium. Arag-Alive is engineered to suppress “new tank syndrome” and compress the ammonia cycle. It begins to cycle your aquarium instantly. In fact, independent labs prove Arag-Alive cycles your aquarium days faster than other brands.

Do not buy this unless you're a pretty in pink kind of person. I cannot attest to the quality of the product or the effectiveness on delivering the promises for water quality. What I can say is that the bags I ordered were not this beautiful black and white color that the product images display; they were frickin pink. It was a huge disappointment; be cautious in your purchasing, as these are not what Amazon is showing.

I ordered this sand the other day and was expecting it too look like the sand in the picture. Well it does not, it is a pinkish color not black. It is just regular looking sand that is also pretty large as far as sand goes. Not what I expected.

This item is titled correctly, it is the "CaribSea Arag-Alive Special Grade Reef Sand, 20-Pound" - and it's white, like the photo of the sand in the bag. It's not the Indo-Pacific Black/White Sand in the round image associated with this product. So buy accordingly. This special grade reef sand is almost twice the price at some other online fish stores. Mine arrived the very next day (gotta love Amazon Prime). If you want a reef sand that won't blow around a ton, this is what you want. Crushed coral is too big, and the other sands are too fine. This one is just right!

Arrived in cold weather, so I was worried it wouldn't be active, but I needn't have been concerned. It's a good product for innoculating a new tank with beneficial bacteria. 20 pounds turned out to be a substantial volume, about 14 inches long by 10 inches wide by 2 inches thick. I suppose the volume depends on the type of sand; large loosely packed particles of aragonite, versus small densely packed quartz.

not black but it is not pink. it looks like the beach. when look click on the product it shows you the right pic of the sand. i would have gave it 5 stars if the first pic was not black. i did not care the color of the sand pink, black, beach any of them are okay. it is the best price for live sand and it looks great.
