I bought this from my local PetCo to replace the flat glass marbles I had in my two betta tanks. The marbles are very pretty, but waste gets under them too easily and makes cleaning the tanks very difficult. A friend recommended I get this sand instead and I am so happy I did! You must rinse the sand thoroughly before adding fish to the tank (this is printed on the back of the bag itself). After rinsing, the water will still be cloudy for about 20 minutes or so, but afterwards it settles quite nicely. This sand is soooo easy to clean. All of the fish waste sits right on top, so I just graze over it in circular motions with my aquarium siphon. I would definitely buy again and have recommended it to many friends!
I would recommend this to a friend!
