Super Naturals™ by CaribSea

Our pre-washed Super Naturals™ are designed with your success, and ease of use in mind. Packaged in sizes that make sense, most types are available in both 20 and 50 pound bags. We have carefully selected different sizes and colors for you, to help you create a natural underwater environment. These inert products will not affect your pH or alkalinity, allowing you to adjust both of these important water quality parameters any way you wish. While these can be used for marine aquariums, keep in mind you will have to use standard buffers, our aragaMilk™, or aragaMight™ to keep your alkalinity and pH up where they need to be.

Torpedo Beach - An inert, natural substrate. Recommended for freshwater aquariums with external filtration, and planted aquariums. Excellent for tanks with freshwater stingrays or catfish.

Yes, I would recommend this.

Love this sand!

Pros: Won’t get sucked into filters, pretty, soft and won’t harm delicate fish skin.

Cons: None

I love this sand. I use it in all my freshwater tanks. It’s soft, pretty, and easy to vacuum. The best part is it’s heavy enough that it doesn’t get sucked into the filters during maintenance. Highly recommend.

Love this sand!

Pros: Heavier and can be siphoned. Beautiful color. Easy to rinse and easy to maintain. Perfect for fancy goldfish

This is one of the first couple of sands I've tried in a tank, I got it for my tank and my indoor pond now and it's been great in both. It's coarse/heavy enough that it isn't floaty and messy, I can use my siphon and not worry about losing a bunch into the drain. It also needs minimal rinsing and becomes clear much quicker than the other sands I've tried. It's beautiful to look at too, it has natural color differences that just make it a very pretty sand all over. Not just boring pure white!

Good quality sand

Pros: Affordable and High quality

Cons: None

Perfect size to prevent heavy clouding of water. Able to be cleaned without clouding up the water or being sucked up the vacuum line. Nice color as well, highly recommended.

CaribSea Super Naturals Torpedo Beach substrate

Pros: Aestetic in appearance/good for bottom dwelling fish.

Cons: It could be a challege for some deep rooted plants/needs fair amount of rinsing before use.

This substrate is the perfect marriage between sand and gravel. It's ideal for soft underbellies and barbels for bottom dwellers. Plus, the color is fine for those who like white substrates but also for those who lean to more natural.
Great product-

No Surprises, Good Product

Reasonably diverse composition, size and material (color, texture... substance) but within the expected range for freshwater sand (larger grains, higher quartz content, etc). Low dust makes for easy application. Product is inert(doesn't alter water chemistry). An excellent filler for increasing substrate depth (how I used it, along with aquatic plant-specific substrates). Perfect product for tanks without live plants that desire a natural feel. Smooth grains will not irritate soft bellied fish (e.g. many catfish). If only you could order this product in larger quantities. Then again, shopping at yout LFS (local fish store... just a little lingo) won't require shipping of what is essentially exotic, pulverized rock... and paying for shipping, of course.
