This sand is an absolutely amazing buy. I ordered it and received it within the time stated. It looks breathtakingly beautiful in my tank and is really easy to clean. In the picture, it looks darker than it looks in a lighted tank. The sand is soft and perfect for plants. Fish enjoy rooting around in it, and it doesn't get dirty easily. The price is actually quite competitive when compared to retailer sands, and this product is by a company that provides QUALITY substrates. It won't harm your water and only needs a rinse in cool water before placing in the tank.
HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
