CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™

Only CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™ Live Sands contains not just the broad spectrum of marine bacteria found in the ocean, but additional specially selected strains of marine bacteria as well. Arag-Alive!™ compresses new tank cycle time and suppresses the initial ammonia spike. Arag-Alive!™ creates a natural biological balance, and makes cycling a new aquarium faster and safer. Live rocks and most invertebrates can be added immediately. Gradually introduce fish within the first 3 weeks, and do not exceed one inch of fish per 5 gallons during this time.

Fiji Pink - This soft pink colored, 100% aragonite substrate is a good intermediate sand size product. The precise 0.5 - 1.5mm grain size combines some of the animal friendly properties of fine sand such as ingestability and low resistance to burrowing, but with better diffusive flux properties and good porosity. This is also the standard choice for reef aquariums at 1 pound per gallon.

The best!

I been reefing for over 16 years and always used this product on all my tank builds I will never use dry sand. This product does cloud the water but it's only aragonite it helps with coralline algae growth it will eventually go away it's never been a problem like that one review below.

Over rated

Nothing special - Pink I think not Real cloudy After a month still can't touch the bottom without cloudy water for the next 24 hours Never really clears up. Have started two XL Diatoms in the hopes this will clean up this mess. If not it goes. If its got all those good things going for it. As they say maybe it belongs in the sump.

Great product

Live, wet, perfect sand. Now that I've tried it, I won't be using anything else. Reasonable price when S/H is free.

Great Bed

This sand makes the prefect bed for any aquarium, best added when starting a new aquarium but if you add it to an established tank use a piece of 2" PVC pipe to funnel it to the bottom to minimize the cloudynes! overall grat sand

Love the color

We really like the color of this sand but it's a little finer then we had hoped. I think the next time we order we will probably stick with the "Fiji Pink" sand but avoid the .5-1.5mm size.

To Early To Tell

It has been just a few days since I added CaribSea's Arag-Alive to my Reef system so I think it is too early to say. I have added it to a already established sand bed with the end game of creating a Deep Sand bed for the purpose of creating a more natural enviorment for my reef inhabitants of fish and corals.
