Q
How much of this do I use?
Hello, This CaibSea, Mineral Mud, container is different than Miracle Mud, being it states one gallon and Miracle Mud, is measured in pounds so how much of this do you need for a 55 gallon aquarium? I have to use about 64 ounces (the ones with the trays) of Miracle Mud. Do I use the same amount of this product and if so how many containers of this product will be needed? Thank you.

Thank you for your question. This product is to be use in a refugium, not in the display tank. you want to have a bed of at least 1" thick so as for the quantity to use, it will depend on the size of the area or container where you will be adding the Mineral Mud.

REVIEW
I have not had this product long enough to judge its performance in the tank, but the can I recieved had pieces of plastic bag in it and some weird pebbles. This leads me to think maybe this is not the best quality control? Though I am saying I would recommend this to a friend I would also have to i...Read More

Good Stuff

REVIEW
This stuff is so worth the wait. I have read a lot of bad reviews but I think this stuff is awesome if you are patient enough to wait for it to completely cycle. It is messy at first but once it settles, it's great. After only a month the water quality is perfection and we even had a spawning o...Read More

It appears to be working as it should. The only problem I've had with this is it clouds up easily.

REVIEW
Well, not sure if it's working, but pretty simple I used about an inch of mineral mud and inch of live sand on top. This is my first time using this product. It did leave my water a little cloudy. That went away within a matter of 3days.
