  • 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.
  • 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.
