CaribSea Aragonite Dry Sands are great for new tanks or adding sand to currently established tanks. Florida Crushed Coral is ideal for very high-flow tanks with a lot of water movement that might blow other finer sands around and create bare spots. This grade of substrate is not recommended on its own for tanks with sand-dwelling or sand-sifting creatures, although it may be used effectively in combination with other finer substrates to fill in bare areas where current is concentrated.


Selecting the right sand: When choosing the right sand for your tank, it is important to keep a few things in mind.

How much flow will be in the tank?
Aquariums with high amounts of water movement will require sand with a larger grain size. Smaller particles can be blown around easily.

What kind of inhabitants will you be keeping?
Many species do require particular types of sand, like gobies, jawfish, and wrasses. Fish and invertebrates that like to burrow or sift through the sand will do best with smaller particle sizes.

Will it be for a refugium or deep sandbed?
Sand that will be used for filtration or refugium, we suggest using smaller particles that will give bacteria more surface area to grow and thrive on.
