Overall good

REVIEW
I really like this sand. And am using it for a five gallon mantis tank. My only issues were that it had brown bits in it too. There's also the issue that the black sand prefers to be on the top...but a simple fix is just to stir it. The magnet thing worried me for awhile until I decided I cou...Read More

Indo-Pacific

REVIEW
This is what the sand looks like in many Indo-Pacific regions I think this sand is spot on and have had no problems with it with my (LOW end) magnet cleaner. If you want a black look with the buffer capabilities of white sand buy it as this product works for me.

Bio-filter complete

REVIEW
After all of the negative things said about this particular product I would have to totally disagree. The color blend is good, and the sand grain size is excellent. This is especially true if you are trying to create an Indo-Pacific biotope where the sand isn't fine, but mixed with lots of rubble ro...Read More

FAIL!

REVIEW
This is by far the worst "sand" I have ever come across. The white portion is sand alright but the black pieces are larger chunks of black rock VERY similar to the black gravel one might get for a freshwater tank (not quite lava rock). Some of the black pieces are up to 2" in size. FA...Read More
