Reborn™ coarse aragonite media for calcium reactors, composed of fossil skeletons of reef building corals sustainably harvested from pristine sites in the Western Pacific. When dissolved, ReBorn replenishes calcium and carbonate alkalinity, strontium and trace elements. The coarse size of ReBorn allows for unrestricted water flow and easy diffusion of carbon dioxide, for maximum efficiency and easy maintenance of the calcium reactor. ReBorn dissolves completely and will not turn to mush!

Course Aragonite Calcium

Pros: If you consider a lowering of your PH a pro.

Cons: Unusable if you want a clear tank.

I purchased this product to use in a 1/3 proportion in a sulfur reactor to help lightly dose cal into my 120 gal Reef tank. The product package states that it is already rinsed and no further rinsing was needed. Upon operation the product caused extremely cloudy water. So I removed the media and rinsed it well and then only added about 10% back. I still could not use it because of the dense fog it produced so I ended up tossing it in the garbage. I searched and searched for a remedy but found non.

Still, the media that melts at the highest ph melting point

Pros: Starts to melt at an high ph melting point

Cons: None

Yeah,
Got this new (smaller) coarse size from Marine Depot.

I have seen some earlier bags (on Reef 2 Reef) with shells and other things that needed to be removed while rinsing. My media came in just like the posted shot, there was nothing that needed to be removed.

The best thing, the new Reborn media still starts melting at a really high melting point, so it has to be the same media that is harvested at smaller pieces.

Note:
It does have smaller grains (compacts), so it takes more pounds than TLFs original Reborn coarse sized media.

Size Difference????

Cons: Does not match the product image as shown elsewhere.

I purchased the large sized media but like the product picture shows, the media looks more like large grains rather than large pieces of dead coral as depicted on other sites. Not sure what's the deal with this... As it comes from Marine Depot, I would recommend contacting other vendors first to verify the size of the pieces because if you're expecting the large coral pieces as shown in most ads, you'll be disappointed with the product as it comes from MD.

Full of garbage

Not only is it just small particle aragonite, it’s also full of plastic, paper, snail shells, gravel and organics. Most beaches have cleaned “sand” than that

No complaints

Pros: Dissolves high

Cons: None

Dissolves around 7.0 pH which is good for tanks with less alkalinity demand and won’t drop your tanks pH too low.

Shipped in garbage bag

I purchased the 44lb box - when it arrived, the media was in a garbage bag inside shipping box - i complained to customer service and they stated that they never ship using garbage bags and agreed to replace the box - second box came in a garbage bag again -
