Yes, I would recommend this.

Very light blows all over

Pros: Beautiful, lightweight love the color

Cons: blows around easily

IF you are running an SPS or acro tank, this would not be the best sand for you. For one it's the smallest grain size and it blows away really easily.. so high flow many pumps would be a nightmare.. with that said it's very beautiful and also would be great for softy tank or wrasses that like to sleep in the sand bed at night..
