Caribsea Fiji... By JcSH2o on 5/27/2017

I bought this sand to mix with my African sand. It's a good sand, though I do recommend heavy rinsing if adding to an established tank.
Pretty uniform grain size, and easy to clean. Definitely not pink, so don't expect it to be. A light tan with barely noticeable pink flecks.
I would recommend, and I would purchase again.
Very Good Sand (Pink is Misleading) By Sean on 1/4/2017

This sand is a small grain size but works well with good flow if you set your exceptions correctly. If you dump this in a new tank and expect clear water and it to settle inside one week and start adding corals you are in the wrong hobby. Slow and steady wins the race.I use MP10 and MP40s with it and no issues after a few weeks. Yes any pump will agitate any sand in the short term. But, after it settles it is fine. Also, it's not pink so if you think you are getting pink sand don't buy. It has flecks of colors that are nice and natural.

I was very happy with my purchase and you can see the pink chips in the sand, perfect for my seahorse tank

The pink bits in this sand are only noticeable in the bags once in the tank you don't see um at all. This is a very fine sand and using 2 Hydor Koralia powerheads 1950 gph each move this sand into piles in the tank. If your like me and have high turbulence powerheads do yourself a favor and add a Large grain sand like the arag alive Florida Crushed coral along with this Fiji fine grain sand to keep your sand in place. Shipping was excellent, heavy but very fast.

Fast and accurate service! That's number 1!
As for the Fiji pink, I got it because I was looking for a tan sand to mix with some African Cichlid sand I had purchased prior. It was a salt and pepper mix, and I wanted to tone it down some. This sand blended perfectly as the grain size was a perfect match.
It's definitely not pink, it is tan. It lightens up even more under tank lighting. Very uniform, and settles quickly. I should add that since this was going in a Malawi tank, I did lightly rinse the sand before mixing.
I really couldn't be happier. Great product for my needs.
It's Sand By William on 4/29/2016

I really can't tell if there are any of the little pink sparkly things in there, it looks like basic live sand to me. It is a really fine sand, not recommended for super high flow, turbulent, tidal, monsoon, type areas. I am pleased with it, but I am easy to please.
Looks great By Eric Johnson on 4/4/2016

This works really well for me. It's fine but doesn't blow around badly unless there's strong direct flow. It is mostly white under my Kessil lights moreso than pink and I like it. Clears very quickly with the packet and didn't seem to affect any of my coral or inverts (I was adding to an existing tank).

Personally chose this sand because Brs recommended it. It looks like sand and feels like sand. I could tell it had pink sparkles in the bag but it just looks like white sand in the tank to me. I used a Brs 2 inch pipe to add the 10 lbs on top of my existing Fiji pink sand.
Beautiful and helps the cycle By James on 2/21/2016

I was nervous buying this sand because i was not sure how pink it would be. But the sand is white and it looks like it has pink crystals in it to liven it up and add some contrast. It took only a day to settle and my watchman goby seems to enjoy it. The super fine dust in the sand did leave a film over most everything in the tank, but it scraped off with good ease.
Looks nice By ERIC on 2/20/2016

The sand looks great in the tank but even slight agitation causes it to cloud the tank water. Maybe ringing the sand prior to adding it to the tank would help, but that would also probable eliminate the bacterial population in the bag. I will probably go dry next time.
