10 kg of ReeFlowers Pearl White Sand forms an area approximately 3cm high sand on a 50x50 base.It’s recommended that the sand be thoroughly rinsed before introduction into the aquarium during both initial installation and during sand refills to compensate for the sand lost over time, if turbidity is to be avoided and that ReeFlowers AquaClear be used after introduction of sand. Presence of dust in the sand is due to its natural formation, whereby the dust has exactly the same content as sand grains, therefore it’s harmless.
It is specially produced for use in aquariums. Sand grains are neither sharp-edged or angular, nor they are harmful to fish and aquarium creatures. Owing to its photoreflectance, it makes sure that photo-sensitive creatures such as corals look more lively and healthy.
ReeFlowers Pearl White Sand is highly pure, which makes it more soluble than other sand types. Higher solubility of sand supports its water-buffering property and provides for a long-lasting whiteness.
