Perfect size and color By jono on 10/14/2015

The grain size of the sand is big enough to not get stirred up by pumps but small enough so it is still aesthetically pleasing. I also like the small pink grains that they put in to add color.

Layerd under Florida crushed coral By Phil on 5/13/2015
Phil would recommend this product to a friend
I put 10 Lbs. of this sand underneath 20lbs of Florida crushed coral. in a 30L tank. I had no problem with cloudy water. What I did was to add just enough salt water to cover the sand which I slowly added. Once everything settled down I added my live rock and then slowly poured salt water over the live rock so as not to disturb the sand. Cannot comment on this sand as it is covered by the crushed coral but looking at this sand layer from the front of my tank it is compacted and is kind of a pinkish beige looking sand of small grain size.

Good sand for fish only display tank By Justin on 2/16/2015
Justin would recommend this product to a friend
On recommendation of BRS staff, I ordered this sand for a 20 gallon long angler display tank along with BRS Fiji dry live rock and a schedule 80 3/4" 90 degree elbow. I am happy with the appearance of the sand and can say it doesn't blow around a lot but I also don't have a huge amount of water flow or a powerhead positioned low due to the fact that this will not be a reef tank. I can't give an accurate account on it's cycling properties as adequate time has not passed yet.

Looks nice in tank. Only giving it 4 stars because I would have liked it to be whiter. Like the grain size.
Don't like it By Dwayne on 9/28/2014
Dwayne wouldn't recommend this product to a friend
I've had this in my tank for a few weeks and I'm wishing I could go back to my fine crushed coral substrate. When I first put this in my tank, it made my water so cloudy I couldn't see to arrange my rocks. I waited a few days for the cloudiness to settle, and again, I attempted to arrange my rocks the way I wanted them. After moving a couple rocks, the water became so cloudy, again, I couldn't see what I was doing. I can't arrange my rocks if I can't see in the tank. I wanted another few days. Tried again to rearrange my rocks. Cloudiness to the point I couldn't see. I hate it. Every time I try to do ANYTHING with my tank, the water gets so muddy I can't see what I'm doing and I then have to put up with muddy water for a few days. This sand is filthy. I hate it. For me, it's been nothing but a mess. If you're like me and occasionally try to clean your tank or rocks, don't bother. You'll hate it.

I did a mix of coarse and fine texture sands in my tank using this product and it turned out great. Time will tell if it helps the tank cycle any quicker. This sand is a nice white color.

Derek would recommend this product to a friend
As stated before by others, don't let the name fool you its not Pink. Size of the sand is just right and looks awesome when finally in your tank under good lighting. I bought 100lbs of this hoping it would be a good sand for a pistol shrimp/goby combo and it seems from reviews and seeing it for myself it will be!

I'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.

It'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.

Great substrate By James on 10/3/2013

I 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 10/3/2013
James would recommend this product to a friend
I 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!

This 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.

This substrate is great for thin sand beds in reef tanks or refugiums, however, BRS must have made a pricing mistakeon the product because you can buy the very same product in 20lb for $24 everywhere else. I was goint to buy 160lbs from BRS, but checked the pricing and bought elsewhere.

I purchased my Fiji Pink Arag-Alive Reef Sand from my local fish store in a "package deal" along with 120 gal & 40 gal tanks. Bulk Reef did not carry this product at the time. List price at the local dealer was over $30.00. BRF's evryday price beat my discounted price per bag by $9.00 a bag!
This reef sand is a great product. The sand was clean which is important as washing will destroy much of the bacterial feature. Don't let "pink" throw you off. This sand has a very natural look.
Cycle time was reduced and I had no ammonia or nitrite spikes [tested every other day during cycle.
PS Our orange spotted goby loves this stuff.
