White Sand, the gravel for the reef aquarium
White Sand is characterized by the following features:
- White Sand consists of 99,6% Calcium carbonate and Magnesium carbonate (Aragonite) . Due to its purity it is best suited as aquarium gravel.
- White Sand is very white and therefore has good reflection properties.
- White sand reflects the light waves of the aquarium lighting and creates an additional diffuse light from the ground, which is beneficial to your light-hungry corals.
- White Sand is heavier than coral sand due to a bulk density of 1.45 kg / liter, which leads to significantly less drift through flow pumps.
White Sand should be rinsed several times before use in the aquarium.
The dust particles, which are caused by abrasion during transport, should be rinsed off. Rinse as long as the water is clear.
We recommend a layer thickness of 2-3 cm in the aquarium.
For DSB (Deep Sand Bed) minimum 8 cm.
