    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for cichlids this product is perfect for cichlid aquariums.its not fine sand like that sugar sand that stays afloat n clogs ur filters its a little coarser and sinks quickly,its also finer than that crushed coral stuff that can cut up ur fish because of its sharp edges.my africans love it and it makes my tank cleaning experience alot easier.plus it keeps my ph right where i need it.and because its not super fine,it doesn't get sucked up by my python syphon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was great to use for my cichlids.. I choose to take out all the gravel in my 55 gallon and add the sand. I bought 40 pounds. I rinsed the sand like the directions said to do. I kept the fish in the tank. While I switched the bottom. It was cloudy for a few days. I did a 20% water change and water clarifier. It is clear now. I left my pumps on the whole time. I will buy this for my other tanks. Thank You. Great price and the free shipping made it all the better. My cichlids love it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product amazing shipping time I bought 80 pounds for my new 125 gallon Cichlid tank. I was worried that it would arrive after the tank. Shipping was super fast. Can't wait to get it in the tank. The only caution from what I heard was to clean it good before putting it in the tank.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The sand works well for what I wanted. First thing wash the sand. It is in the instructions but you will have issues if you do not (said again because it is a must). I'm using it as my main aquarium sand bed approx. 1 inch deep. I'm happy with it. It does not blow around too much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product and Great Price I ordered 120 lbs (3Bags) used only 2. The sand is very dusty, I lightly rinsed and placed it in my aquarium full of water with no fish. It was very cloudy for about a day and a half and then cleared up very well. (Be patient it will clear) Make sure to leave power heads and pump on, If not it will become cloudy again. This is a great product and I had it shipped free, Cant beat that.
