Awesome sand

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.

Sand in the Tank

Just what I wanted! Very little cloudiness when I added the reef sand to the tank. I have two power heads for circulation and the water looks pristine.
