Caribsea Arag-Alive Fiji Pink Information

CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™

Only CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™ Live Sands contains not just the broad spectrum of marine bacteria found in the ocean, but additional specially selected strains of marine bacteria as well. Arag-Alive!™ compresses new tank cycle time and suppresses the initial ammonia spike. Arag-Alive!™ creates a natural biological balance, and makes cycling a new aquarium faster and safer. Live rocks and most invertebrates can be added immediately. Gradually introduce fish within the first 3 weeks, and do not exceed one inch of fish per 5 gallons during this time.

Fiji Pink - This soft pink colored, 100% aragonite substrate is a good intermediate sand size product. The precise 0.5 - 1.5mm grain size combines some of the animal friendly properties of fine sand such as ingestability and low resistance to burrowing, but with better diffusive flux properties and good porosity. This is also the standard choice for reef aquariums at 1 pound per gallon.

Manufacturer Info

At CaribSea we take aquariums seriously. Since 1972 we have supplied hundreds of public aquariums, zoos, aquaculture facilities, public and private institutions, and hundreds of thousands of dedicated aquarists with the highest quality marine and freshwater products. CaribSea has been in the forefront of the principle that substrates are a piece of equirment, not just a decorative afterthought. Caribsea substrates are as precisely engineered as any piece of advanced equipment used by today`s hobbyists and professionals. CaribSea products are the chemical support, biological filtration, and biodiversity backbone for many of the most spectacular aquatic displays ever created. We are now celebrating our 35th year in the business, and our product line has continued to grow; making CaribSea your aragonite source and so much more.

Comments: Nothing special - Pink I think not Real cloudy After a month still can't touch the bottom without cloudy water for the next 24 hours Never really clears up. Have started two XL Diatoms in the hopes this will clean up this mess. If not it goes. If its got all those good things going for it. As they say maybe it belongs in the sump.

Comments: This sand makes the prefect bed for any aquarium, best added when starting a new aquarium but if you add it to an established tank use a piece of 2" PVC pipe to funnel it to the bottom to minimize the cloudynes! overall grat sand

Comments: We really like the color of this sand but it's a little finer then we had hoped. I think the next time we order we will probably stick with the "Fiji Pink" sand but avoid the .5-1.5mm size.

Comments: It has been just a few days since I added CaribSea's Arag-Alive to my Reef system so I think it is too early to say. I have added it to a already established sand bed with the end game of creating a Deep Sand bed for the purpose of creating a more natural enviorment for my reef inhabitants of fish and corals.

Comments: As always, caribsea products are great, but the description of this product is very misleading. There isn't a single grain of pink anything in the bag I received. Just the standard baige color of there standard sand. Might just be the bag I got, but was kind of dissapointed.
