Love The Look

This sand is fine but does not blow around at all. I have not had it stick to my mag float when cleaning the tank. I did rinse it out good before putting it in my tank. It went in and settled fast without any mess at all. Nice not to have any white dust on tank walls and rock. The black sand really looks amazing especially under high lighting. It shows off other colors of fish, corals etc fabulously!

Love it

Never looks dirty and not having any PH issues. As for it being magnetic, its baloney, this stuff sits on the bottom of the tank and does not get pulled into the mag float when I am cleaning the glass. Great if you want your corals and fish to POP.

Good Color

I use this in two different tanks. One nano 5g reef and a 200g reef. The sand is fine so dont expect to point a power head at it but it doesnt blow around either of my tanks. It makes colors pop. The big plus is it doesnt show waste as bad as white sand.

Awesome substrate

I had done my research and this substrate was exactly what I wanted for my new 75 gallon aquarium. The black sand is very beautiful and makes the colors of my African Cicchlids "pop".

black sand

We purchased the black sand for our saltwater reef tank it was just how it was described and came promptly with good packaging. for others buying this product for a reef type set up id suggest getting a bigger grain to mix with it because alone the sand floats across the bottom too much with the high current we use in our reef tank but all in all a good product

Pretty neat

Under the right lighting, this sand looks amazing. I had it under bright lights at first and you could see some white and yellow specs everywhere, but now with my new setup this sand really brings out my ornaments and the colors of my fish.

Warning!

The sand looks great in the tank, however be warned that it is magnetic and will adhere to Tunze magnets, Scrapers, or anything else it comes in contact with. My wife scratched the tank not seeing that some had collected on a feeding clip. Then begs the questions, what metals are in it? Obviously nothing too toxic as she's ran this sand in her tank for 8 months and everything looks great. However, having known it was magnetic, I certainly woudln't have used this in both of my tanks.
