CaribSea Arag-Alive Special Grade Reef Sand 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.

Special Grade Reef Sand - Grain Size 1.0 - 2.0 mm. This coarse sand is 100% aragonite and has excellent diffusive properties. A very versatile product, use in a deep or shallow beds. A significant denitrator when utilized in deeper beds or plenum systems.

Comments: 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.
