Walt Smith Fiji Mud - 6lb


Fiji Mud is collected from rare mud patches, discovered by science years ago, which are found in clear uncontaminated seawater. These patches typically occur at 40 - 50 feet of cool, clear water just off the coral reef.

Fiji Mud is unique in its ability to release essential minerals and vital nutrients that will allow hard and soft corals to flourish whether you are starting a new refugium or topping up your existing one. This product contains all the major and minor trace elements as they naturally occur as well as an elaborate network of 5-100 micron size organisms that are critical for the success of Acropora and other small polyp stony corals.

The size of your refugium will determine the amount of mud to use. In most cases, you should aim for a 1 1/2" - 3" layer of mud in order to maintain proper nutrient saturation, but you can get a more exact figure of how much you will need for your system by using our Sand Bed Calculator and setting the Density Value to "finer-size" and Sand Depth to "1 1/2" - 3".

Alternate use: this product can also be added directly to your aquarium at the rate of one teaspoon per 100 gallons twice weekly. Mix with tank water and pour directly into water flow, the water will become cloudy but will return crystal clear overnight. This will add the essentials nutrients when no refugium is available.
