Rated 5 out of 5 by betta2234 Nice sand
I use this sand in my 10 gallon tank for my betta sorority and it looks super nice. I have the black sand and it gives the tank a nice natural look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kdazy great product
Best sand i've ever used. I've used the black I'm four tanks for a year now and still love it It never raised the PH and never had any trouble at all with it. Rinsed easily
Some will float on top of water but if you either stir it around it will settle or just take it out with a fish net. I would recommend this product to anyone also it doesn't get sucked up in your hose when cleaning the bottom of your tank.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Girly Best Sand Out There
I have more tanks than I'd like to admit, and this is by far the best aquarium sand I have used. Rinsed very easily and crystal clear. Very fine, but heavier than other sands, so it doesn't get kicked up as easily. I doubt I will get any other substrate in the future honestly. Great job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Betta578 5# black raised my ph 8.8+
I read one review before I purchased the 5# bag of black sand that said it raised their pH. Since it was the only one, I thought it was a fluke. It is no fluke. I washed the black sand 3 times and put in a 12 gallon tank. Once full of neutral pH (7.0) RO water, it raised the pH off the charts. I emptied the tank and tried again, with the same results. I ended up taking the sand out and using just RO water now and my pH is perfect. This sand also tinted the water very black, like I rinsed carbon in it. All of this happened after I thoroughly washed the sand 3 times and didn't disturb it when filling my tank with RO water. I think I will return the sand because it seems to leach too much.
