Natural Perfection with CaribSea's Special Grade Reef Sand

Ideal for both new setups and additions to existing tanks, this 40lb bag offers a cost-effective alternative to live sand. The dry nature of CaribSea's sand allows for pre-rinsing to remove dust, ensuring a clear view in your aquarium from the start.

CaribSea's Special Grade Dry Sand is not pre-populated with bacteria, giving you the control to introduce the specific strains of live bacteria you prefer, creating a customized environment tailored to your aquarium's needs. The sand's grain size not only supports a healthy aquarium by providing ample surface area for beneficial bacteria, but also enhances the aesthetic of your tank with its natural appearance. It's also suitable for most sand-sifting fish and invertebrates.
