National Geographic™ Aquarium Sand
Great Sand - fix the bag strength
So I bought 10lbs of this to give it a test and it worked great. I didn't rinse it. There was some stuff on top that went in the filter but not much and it settles nicely. I have cories and snails on it and they rummage through it and it never floats or anything. It looks great too and the cories love it. Why I'm knocking off a star is that I went back to buy a 25lb bag - that's how much I liked it, but when I was carryin it, it ripped open. Of course, petsmart is great and they let me trade it for a new one, but you guessed it, by the time I was in the parking lot, the bag was ripping. THe national geographic bag is so cheap that with 25lbs of sand, it starts to give. When I looked at the bags at the store, almost everyone was ripped and had holes. It's a thin bag for such a heavy product, so while I recommend it, I want to give a heads up to handle the larger bags with caution.
