Aragamax Grand Bahama Biome Sand:0.25 - 7mm majority grain size, but with additional bits of reef sand and small shells to recreate the Carribean reef "Rubble Zone". The larger bits of aragonite not only add color and texture, but allow burrowing organisms to buttress their tunnels and prevent collapse.

CaribSea Aragonite buffers to the highest pH and delivers more calcium, carbonate, and trace elements than any other substrate. Little or no rinsing required, aragonite keeps aquariums healthier, longer.

Visually appealing

I purchased this substrate for a 40g breeder tank. I have always been weary of small grain substraits. I took a risk, and it was worth it! Not only is the sand visually appealing, it is also incredibly pistol shrimp friendly! Will buy again! P.S. The larger pieces of shell and coral bits help keep the smaller sand particles from blowing everywhere! (At least in my tank)

As described.

I bought a bag of this recently and found it just as described, mostly fine sand with a good mix of coarser sand, broken seashells and coral bits added. Looks more interesting and realistic than having sand of one particular grade. It is true that years back this product seemed to be about half clamshells and half sand.

More shells and less sand

The description sounds as if there are just a few shells and pieces in the sand, but my bag was over half shells and less sand.
