CaribSea Arag-Alive Special Grade Reef Sand 20 lb Information




CaribSea Arag-Alive Sp. Grade 1-2mm: Arag-Alive! Aragonite Reef Sand with Live Stabilized Marine Bacteria : Use alone, or to kick-start our dry aragonite! Arag-Alive has more surface area for bacterial porosity; approximately 20,000 square inches per cubic inch! Arag-Alive will dramatically reduce cycling time in new set-ups because it contains millions of heterotrophic, autotrophic, and chemolithotrophic bacteria. Arag-Alive has 381,000 ppm calcium, 7,390 ppm strontium, 1050 ppm magnesium, 590,000 ppm carbonate (buffer), 56 ppm potassium, and is lowest in phosphate and has no silica. Arag-Alive also provides molybdenum, barium, boron, selenium, beryllium, and other essential ocean trace elements. CaribSea Arag-Alive is not beach collected. This aragonite comes from the pure and pristine Bahama Banks and unlike beach zone collected sands contains no tar, harmful organics, or impurities.

Comments: 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.

Comments: Very nice color and texture. My corals look beautiful after substrate placement because of the contrast between the sand and coral bright colors. I am very impressed by the quality of the product. Highly recommend the product.
