  • Poorly packaged. By on 4/18/2016

    Sand looks good and showed up wet but clearly a lot of moisture seeped out during shipping as the box it came in was soaked.
  • Amazing By on 1/14/2016

    All around the best sand. At first was worried because it was extremely cloudy but by surprise cleared up within 5 - 6 hours. Grain size is prefect doesn't get blown around.
  • Single best sand for your tank By on 11/18/2015

    Best "beach sand" look, best particle size. This is the only sand I put in my tanks.
  • The only sand I use but needs to be packaged better for shipping By on 3/12/2015

    I use this sand in both of my tanks. Much better than the fine/sugar grain that I used in the beginning which gets blown around very easy. BRS does not bag items containing liquid so if there is a puncture of any kind during transport it gets messy. Had a bag of this sand shipped with other items and it leaked salt water and bits of sand all over everything. Customer service was notified and hopefully they adjust their packaging accordingly.
  • The stuff By on 2/4/2015

    This is the only substrate I use. I searched the web for reviews of substrate and most pointed my towards the "Special Grade". I like the particulate size and my wrasses burrow every night in it without a problem. I tried the Oolite previously and found it to be too fine when siphoning.
  • Fantastic sand. By on 2/2/2015

    I just love this stuff. Used the Fiji pink on my last build, so I thought I'd try this on my current build. Similar in color to the Fiji pink, just slightly larger and more uniform. This is the PERFECT reef sand.
  • Looks Good By on 1/2/2015

    Larger particle sand that looks great. Doesn't blow around as much as the finer stuff.
  • Perfect Size By on 12/24/2014

    Perfect size sand, worth it.
  • Went from Ocean direct to this - great choice By on 12/5/2014

    This sand is bigger than the sugar fine stuff that I have used in the past but still looks the same. Good for sand sifters and doesn't blow around as much as the fine sand. DOES BLOW AROUND SOME, so if you have a high flow tank I would go with something a bit bigger. Looks awesome though. 1 lb per gallon gave me 1-2in sandbed in my 90.
  • The best grade sand By on 3/31/2014

    I really do like this stuff. I have run Fiji pink in the past and it just seems like that allows for detritus pockets to form inside it due to its small size. This grade seems have it build up on the surface until the CUC gets it. I am very happy with this product.
