Tonga Coarse Quartz Aquarium Sand is a popular choice among aquarium enthusiasts who are looking for a natural substrate that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. This type of sand is made from 100% quartz, which means it is inert and will not affect the water chemistry of your aquarium. It is also non-toxic and safe for all aquarium inhabitants.

One of the key benefits of Tonga Coarse Quartz Aquarium Sand is its size. It is specifically designed to be larger and coarser than other types of aquarium sand, which makes it ideal for use in aquariums with larger fish or with a high flow rate. The larger grains of sand will not be disturbed as easily, and they will also help to anchor plants and decorations in place.

Another benefit of Tonga Coarse Quartz Aquarium Sand is its natural color. The sand is a light, natural tan color that will blend in well with any aquarium decor. It is also easy to clean and maintain, and will not discolor over time.

When using Tonga Coarse Quartz Aquarium Sand, it is important to rinse it thoroughly before adding it to your aquarium. This will remove any dust or debris that may have accumulated during storage. It is also recommended to use a substrate cleaner or vacuum to remove any uneaten food or waste that may have settled into the sand over time.

Overall, Tonga Coarse Quartz Aquarium Sand is a great choice for aquarium enthusiasts who are looking for a functional and natural substrate that is both easy to maintain and aesthetically pleasing.

Your plants will be wrapped with recyclable Honey Comb wrap - sounds cool because it is :). It interlocks which means we don't need to use tape either, reducing our impact on the environment.

Not only is delivery fast with DPD Express but it's also green as they offset all the carbon their vehicles produce. Guilt free delivery which we're very proud of...

We guarantee you'll be happy with your order. But if you're not, please contact us so we can resolve. We are 100% here to help and will always do our best to resolve any issues - that's a promise.
