  • Glad I chose it. By on 4/15/2017

    Not much you can say about a bag of sand, but I can say that to me, this is the most natural looking sand I've used. Filled the tank by pumping the water in over the live rock, and the tank was cloudy for about 12 hours. The sand stays put with pretty high flow.
  • Nice sand By on 3/10/2017

    This sand is high quality, helps cycle your tank faster, and looks nice. However, after having it in my tank for a few months, I notice it tends to collect more debris than finer grain sand. I'd recommend mixing it about half and half with some finer grain sand. That seems to prevent the original problem, and helps keep the finer sand from blowing around the tank.

    I use a bag and half of Special grade floor sand along with 20 lb bag of the alive reef sand sand in my 125 gallon tank,the water is crystal clear But I can't tell if there is actual bacteria in the tank.
  • Good By on 2/7/2017

    It worked
  • I highly recommend it By on 10/27/2016

    Great product,, small enough to be sand and not look like gravel,, large enough so it doesn't blow around like fine sand,, I just put it in the tank last night,, this morning,, the water is crystal clear,, obviously,, I can't tell if there is actual bacteria,, but it's better than nothing :)
  • Da Best Sand! By on 9/10/2016

    This without a doubt is the best sand I've used to date. It was easy to use and it helped with the biological maturation of my newly setup reef. I just pour in ALL the contents of the bag and within a couple of hours, my water was gin clear to see the shimmer of my Kessil lights over the new sand bed!
  • Excellent By on 7/30/2016

    When I set up my previous 120 gallon I used another type of sand and it took days to clear. I am now setting up a 400 gallon tank with a sump water flow of 1800 gal/hr and a closed loop in the tank of 1800 gal/hr with 8 returns. I was worried my tank may look cloudy for many days or the sand would blow around. It came moist with an additive which cleared the water. The next day the water was clear and the sand stayed in place. IMPRESSED!
  • Best sand on market. By on 6/27/2016

    I use this sand in my 125 gallon tank. Much better than the fine/sugar grain that. 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 all over everything. Customer service was notified and hopefully they adjust their packaging.
  • 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.
