Outstanding By Dinoflagellates on 4/17/14Dinoflagellates would recommend this product to a friendI 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 4/8/14MatraD would recommend this product to a friendI 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 1/16/14Bradon would recommend this product to a friendI'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 12/10/13lobro4 would recommend this product to a friendIt'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.
Nice sand By Jake Wilkerson on 10/15/13Jake Wilkerson would recommend this product to a friendI've used it in the past with great results. Awesome consistancy and good packaging when you order 2 20s at a time.
Great substrate By James on 10/3/13James would recommend this product to a friendI bought tis sand for two reasons grain size and bacteria. The color is perfect and grain size is really good for goby and pistol shrimp combos. The bacteria seemed to help control the ammonia and nitrite level at start up. BRS has great people helping you all you need to do is call and ask them a question and they will have the solution you are looking for. Thanks BRS!
Good size granules and very nice looking By James on 10/3/13James would recommend this product to a friendI bought this with the live bacteria and good grain size in mind. Size mattered cause I wanted a goby and pistol shrimp combo and turns out they really seem to like this size granules. Like others have said don't let the pink name fool you it is in my opinion the exact color of sand I is the perfect color. The bacteria seemed to help control the ammonia and nitrite spikes again just like what I hoped it would. BRS has a very nice and well versed reef keepers on hand to help you in any way they can. I buy here on all items as long as they have what I need. Thanks BRS!
Nice sand By John on 9/14/13John would recommend this product to a friendGreat sand, Don't let the pink in the name fool You! The sand is very pure white ! BRS is so quick in the shipping dept !
Live Sand By Chris on 9/1/13Chris would recommend this product to a friendPurchased 60# for a new set up, I am sure the UPS man is starting to dislike me at this point. Excellent looking sand that clears up quickly.
Great Sand By Jay on 7/15/13Jay would recommend this product to a friendVery happy with this sand. It was very clean and the tank had cleared up within 24 hours. Great color and grain size.
Wonderful Stuff By Kyle on 6/22/13Kyle would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff is hard to stir up (which is great when trying to keep water clear), very good surface area for bacteria, and pleasing to the eye. Plus, it's extremely simple to cut a bag and dump the sand in.
Great Look! By Dan on 5/22/13Dan would recommend this product to a friendVery nice look... 30 gallon tank needs at least 3 bags. I only picked up 2, but will eventually pick up another bag.

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 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.

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 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.
by Bud on January 5, 2014, @2:58 PM
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.
