This sand is a beautiful white color, but is VERY FINE. If you want that, then this is great. It does look beautiful once it settles, and is great for sand sifting animals.

I really love this sand. I bought it for my pistol shrimp and goby. One thing to keep in mind... This is sand for people that know what they are doing. If you're some beginner that doesn't understand what fine sand is, what happens when it's new, or what it's for, stick to the coarser sands. The sad thing is with all these negative reviews from people that have no idea what they are talking about, they'll probably discontinue it. :(

Note that I did not buy the sand thru Amazon, which is why I'm not listed as a verified purchaser. I bought this from a local store and I'm going to replace it with a coarser arag sand on Amazon. The sand is too damn fine.. its like dust. It takes days to settle and clear, and then the first time you do something in the tank (started to add in live rock) another cloud forms that covers everything. I'm not the most experienced aquarist and I get that this is of value for certain types of sand shifting fish that pass it thru their gills but the product description is for generic bioactive active sand and does not speak to the use of this particular grade of sand. It can lead to many people wasting their money and time as I did.

Even with a very gentle flow the sand gets swept around the tank or worse kicked up into the water column, turning the whole the whole tank milky white.

I love the look of this sand, but it does move around quite easily based on where your powerheads are located.
