Q
Is this grade of sand suitable for sand-sifting species?
I want a sand that will work for sand-sifting species but not get blown around by powerful currents. Will this work for both of these concerns?

A
This sand can be used with sand sifting species. The grain size is 1.0mm - 2.0mm so stronger currents would be fine as long as you are not blowing directly at the sand.

“CaribSea Arag-Alive Reef Sand”

I added 10 pounds of CaribSea Reef Sand to my 10 gallon nano reef aquarium and everything in my tank stabilized within 24 hours. It did take 48 hours for the water to clear even after adding the water clear additive included with the caribsea sand. What a positive impact this sand has had on my reef...Read More

“Awesome sand”
5.0

I was debating between this sand and the Fiji pink, and I'm glad I went with this. This sand looks even better in person. It's just the right size and it doesn't get blown all over the tank with the power heads. You wont be disappointed.
