CaribSea 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.

Q
If I were to put this in a ten gallon reef tank with about 240 gph of flow, would it blow around a lot? I've considered ocean direct but would rather have the smaller sand particles. Thanks for your time
Just looking for some advice

Hi Tristan, The Fiji Pink sand should not blow around after a bio film develops. The particle size is small but is not lightweight.

PROS
Nice for sand shifters
CONS
Not as much pink crushed she'll as one would hope for.
REVIEW
It's a fine sand so sand shifters will be at home, but also blows around easier. Was hoping for more pink shell being broken up in the sand but there is very little.
