CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™

Only CaribSea’s Arag-Alive!™ Live Sands contains not just the broad spectrum of marine bacteria found in the ocean, but additional specially selected strains of marine bacteria as well. Arag-Alive!™ compresses new tank cycle time and suppresses the initial ammonia spike. Arag-Alive!™ creates a natural biological balance, and makes cycling a new aquarium faster and safer. Live rocks and most invertebrates can be added immediately. Gradually introduce fish within the first 3 weeks, and do not exceed one inch of fish per 5 gallons during this time.

Bimini Pink - Grain Size 0.2 - 2.2 mm. Our most color intensive reef substrate. Pink predominates over a suite of colors and grain sizes. Spectacular!

Great Look and Quality

I usually go with the Hawian Black Sand but I wanted to try this sand to get a different look. The different sizes in the sand as well as the different colors really make this sand incredible. Caribsea is always top quality and this sand makes the substrate much less boring.

Not a fan

This sand had tons of big shells that were sharp. I didn’t see much of a pink tone in my bag. It got dirty very easily too. I ripped it out and replaced it with the black. Huge improvement.

I love this sand.

Pros: Corse grain. Clean. Clears up fast.

Cons: None.

The only pink I the sand is the chunks of crushed shell. The overall size of grain favors the large side. It can handle some flow before it starts to move. Great sand for a medium flow reef tank.

Looks Awesome

Pros: Everything

Cons: Can't think of a thing

The sand looks awesome. It has a bunch of shells and parts of shells in it that give the tank a natural look.

Loving this sand

Just started my 7th tank and I am using this sand and I and loving it. The perfect size and texture. Though the sand itself isn't that pink, they are small pink rocks, shells and more that contrast the sand and make it look amazing!

Bimini Pink

The sand is great for getting set up with little effort. I did mix it with some non-live sand in a tub of pre-mixed saltwater prior to placing in my tank. I did not see any rise in nitites or ammonia. Tank was really cloudy. That worried me for a short while. But, the tank cleared up nicely. Good product.
