Flamingo Reef Sand: 1-2 mm diameter grain size. Coralline pink highlights make this substrate colourful as well as functional. Flamingo Reef gives maximum performance in plenum-type nitrate reducing beds, or simply a reef or fish tank bottom cover. Precision grading allows effective delivery of calcium, carbonate, and trace elements. Not bleach collected, no silica!
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.

I have had great luck with Caribsea products. But with smaller nano reefs I have found some sands to be to small and pump will blow them around ending up on rocks and coral. I decided on this sand over the Fiji pink because of the larger grain size. Product has great size and color and stays put in a small nano reef with MP10s running on it. Has a large amount of pink pieces of sand in it. Very similar to Fiji pink just larger size.

I like this product. Nice texture variation and color. The bag indicates it doesn't need to be rinse before putting in the tank. Don't believe it. The water became very murky even after a couple days. I had to siphon if off and do a partial water change.
