AQUATIC VENTUREZ Aragonite Reef Sand | 5kg
AQUATIC VENTUREZ Aragonite Reef Sand is ideal for reef system tank bottoms, denitrifying anaerobic beds, extremely high surface area filter media.
Aragonite Reef Sand reduces fish stress by recreating a natural reef environment in the tank. It is precision-graded for efficient calcium carbonate buffering and high in strontium, magnesium, and other essential reef elements, and always silica-free. It is harvested from pristine ocean waters – not collected from beaches or reefs – and contains no harmful tar, organics or impurities.
Its buffering capabilities are unmatched, helping to maintain a proper pH of 8.2 without the constant addition of chemicals to the tank. Each pound of Aragonite provides up to 10,000 square inches of surface area for maximum growth of beneficial, water-purifying bacteria. These bacteria help control nitrate, nitrite, ammonia, and other harmful waste products to keep your fish healthy and your tank clean.
Rinse well with clean water. Do not use soap or detergent.
When using Aragonite for African cichlids or other freshwater applications, a slight cloudiness may persist until the aquarium cycles due to high rates of calcium carbonate dissolution.
