Sand substrate is a popular choice among many aquarium keepers, as it helps to recreate a natural environment which is great for your fish, while also being inexpensive and really quite attractive.
If you have a marine tank, one of the best things you can buy for it is Live Sand. This sand comes in real seawater and comes preloaded with millions of sea bacteria and organisms that act as a filter in your tank, keeping the water even cleaner in conjuction with your existing filter system.
We also supply inert sand to avoid the pH of the water from being affected. We also prefer to supply pre-washed and dye-free sand which won't give off powder or pollute the aquarium water, keeping your tank at its best.
Although all our sand is pre-washed, we advise washing it again before placing it in your aquarium, as if any bacteria survived the process it may have developed. Washing inert sand is good practice.
Another way of recreating a natural environment is through the inclusion of live plants. Live plants can benefit from Co2 and planting equipment in order to thrive.
We know that you are keen to get your substrate into the tank and get everything set up perfectly, so we don't want to hold you back. That's one of the reasons we offer Next Working Day delivery options and if you order before 3pm on weekdays we even send your order out the very same day!
