CaribSea Special Grade Arag-Alive! Live Reef Sand
Special Grade Live Reef Sand is our recommended reef sand of choice. We use this sand in all of our systems as it’s ready to work, clears quickly, and contains millions of live bacteria to cycle super fast and create a natural biological balance. Arag-Alive! suppresses the dreaded “new tank syndrome”, compresses the ammonia cycle, and discourages nuisance algae. In fact, independent labs prove Arag-Alive! cycles days faster than other brands of live sand. That’s what makes Arag-Alive! the choice of new aquarists and maintenance companies where speed of set up, beauty, and reliability are demanded.
How much sand is needed?
We suggest 1 - 1.5 pounds of sand per 2 gallons of display tank volume for about 1" - 1.5" sand depth. If you are unsure about how much is needed for your aquarium please do not hesitate to give us a call or shoot us an email.
