Hello,

I'm looking on amazon to buy some granular sand. I am for granular sand so it doesn't blow around the bottom of the tank/be so messy. Does anyone have anytips what to look for? Some of the carib sea aragonite says coarse but what I can tell from pics looks fine.

Thanks

Tropic Eden Reef Flakes are what I bought due to seeing a lot of positive feedback on various forums. Not a prime shipping option though =(

I had the same problem on my first tank. I thought super fine oolite was what the cool kids used. It was a pain, never again. Couldn't vacuum it, couldn't turn power heads up.

This stuff works well, looks nice and my goby + shrimp can dig in it fine and my leopard wrasse dives into it to sleep just fine.
