So clean it will save you time — most competing brands and substitutes big box store pool sand will be lower quality sand requiring you substantial wash cycles prior to use Washed and graded to the same high standards as the potable water industry Naturally cleaned as an alluvial deposit then washed again by our manufacturing processes.
Industry Leading low acid solubility <1% Means its inert, will eliminate or minimize imparting ph changes, hardness or other unwanted effects to your water Highly uniform particles sizes <1.3 Uniformity Means voids between particles are optimized for minimizing movement of unused food, waste and organics to the bottom of the tank.
Sub-angular shape Smooth edges protect fish and serve to ensure better entrapment of waste, unused food, and fish waste to the bottom of the tank.
Completely Natural. 100% natural. Environmentally-friendly. Non-toxic. No artificial coatings. Same great look.
Your Red Flint gravel layer will become the home of a beneficial bacteria that will break down ammonia from fish urine and waste into nitrites and facilitate the transformation to nitrates. Nitrates are less toxic for your fish. Gravel is also an excellent anchor for the roots of your plants. Over all Red Flint aquarium substrate is just about the best thing you can do for creating unique beauty and balancing your water chemistry.
Red Flint sand substrate is naturally occurring in the rivers and streams in nature. This enables familiar environments where sand is needed with your fish species that are not accustom to fast moving rivers that might include larger stones. Sand also closes the space between the particles more-so limiting the debris buildup that inevitably leads to breaking down organics over time which increases nitrates and phosphate and can lower water quality. When debris is on top of the substrate its easy to remove and less time in cleaning.
LAYER YOUR AQUARIUM ENVIRONMENT
