    How much of this would I need for a normal 75g tank? I am looking at having a 2in deep sand bed.

    Bulk Reef Supply It depends on the exact dimensions of your tank but assuming its 48x18 like most 75g tanks then your looking at about 100lbs for a 2" sand bed.

    how much live sand do i need for a 55 gal tank with rock and fish

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Bill,
    It depends on how deep of a sand bed that you are looking for. Assuming your tank is a standard 55g dimensions you can expect roughly a 1" sand bed for each 35lbs of sand that you use though.

    How much of this product would I need to cover a 36" x 18" surface to a depth of 1"-2"?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hey Kevin,
    Right about 70lbs of sand would get you about 2" of sand bed on a footprint that size.

    I am looking to put an inch depth in a new 225 gallon tank, 27x72. Is this sand really alive? I am starting with dry live rock and do not to put anything bad in my tank. Please advise. How much do I need? thx

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Adam,
    It has the beneficial bacteria in it which is what makes it "alive" but it will still be pest free. Adding 1" of sand to a 27x72 area would require right about 100lbs of sand.

    How much sand do I need for a 120 gal tank?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Shane,
    Assuming standard 2ft x 4ft dimensions of most 120g tanks. 120lbs would get you about a 2" sand bed which is pretty typical for most folks.

    Would this sand work for an already established tank. I plan on replacing crushed coral with fiji pink. Dont know if I want to put live sand in.

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Jason,
    It wouldn't be a problem at all to use this with an existing tank. The biggest concern would be to make sure you remove the old substrate a little bit at a time. You don't want to remove it all at once as there may be a high population of your bacterial filtration on it.

    What is the shelf life of this sand? I want to purchase this now that it's on sale but will not be using it for perhaps a month or so.

    Thanks:)

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi David,
    That wont be any problem at all :-)

    Is this wet in the bag or dry?

    Bulk Reef Supply Hi Todd,
    The sand is moist, generally with a little bit of liquid resting in the bottom of the bag.

  • Good sand for fish only display tank By Justin on 2/16/2015

    On recommendation of BRS staff, I ordered this sand for a 20 gallon long angler display tank along with BRS Fiji dry live rock and a schedule 80 3/4" 90 degree elbow. I am happy with the appearance of the sand and can say it doesn't blow around a lot but I also don't have a huge amount of water flow or a powerhead positioned low due to the fact that this will not be a reef tank. I can't give an accurate account on it's cycling properties as adequate time has not passed yet.
  • Perfect Size By George on 1/28/2015

    This sand is awesome it looks great and stays in place, i use to have Fine sand and my fish would always kick it up.
  • perfect By danny on 1/2/2015

    The grain size is perfect for that overall reef look & it stays in place when my mp40's run over 90%
  • Nice Sand By Crisis on 12/9/2014

    Looks nice in tank. Only giving it 4 stars because I would have liked it to be whiter. Like the grain size.
  • Don't like it By Dwayne on 9/28/2014

    I've had this in my tank for a few weeks and I'm wishing I could go back to my fine crushed coral substrate. When I first put this in my tank, it made my water so cloudy I couldn't see to arrange my rocks. I waited a few days for the cloudiness to settle, and again, I attempted to arrange my rocks the way I wanted them. After moving a couple rocks, the water became so cloudy, again, I couldn't see what I was doing. I can't arrange my rocks if I can't see in the tank. I wanted another few days. Tried again to rearrange my rocks. Cloudiness to the point I couldn't see. I hate it. Every time I try to do ANYTHING with my tank, the water gets so muddy I can't see what I'm doing and I then have to put up with muddy water for a few days. This sand is filthy. I hate it. For me, it's been nothing but a mess. If you're like me and occasionally try to clean your tank or rocks, don't bother. You'll hate it.
  • Nice Sand By Keith on 9/4/2014

    I did a mix of coarse and fine texture sands in my tank using this product and it turned out great. Time will tell if it helps the tank cycle any quicker. This sand is a nice white color.
  • Great Product! By Jon N on 6/7/2014

    Wonderful sand and is from a great company that adds lots of beneficial bacteria. really enjoy this sand I usually mix a couple sized sand and this is a nice top off sand. Great quality!
  • Great looking and clean sand By Derek on 5/2/2014

    As stated before by others, don't let the name fool you its not Pink. Size of the sand is just right and looks awesome when finally in your tank under good lighting. I bought 100lbs of this hoping it would be a good sand for a pistol shrimp/goby combo and it seems from reviews and seeing it for myself it will be!
  • Outstanding By Dinoflagellates on 4/17/2014

    I bought this sand following the positive reviews and it did what it needed to do... I have a super fast start in the cycle of my thank thanks to the bacteria on it, I will definitely recommend this product plus it looks amazing!!
  • Great prices, great stuff, always use it! By MatraD on 4/8/2014

    I always use Fiji pink - just ordered 120lbs of it from BRS for a new set up, arrived as expected as always - and great prices!
  • Great Product By Bradon on 1/16/2014

    I'm not sure how well the "live" part of the sand works, but the texture and size of the sand is perfect. Not too small that it gets blown around, but not so big that it makes it look tacky.
  • Perfect size. Perfect product By lobro4 on 12/9/2013

    It's nice to have the 10 lb bag option. I needed it to add the finishing touches to aquascaping in a new aquarium. Grain size is just what you need. No extra sticks or seaweed or trash--clean. Comes with a small pouch of clarifier which is handy.
