ATI Aquaristik presented a new product – a special sand for saltwater aquariums.
Fine white gravel for aquarium (0.3 to 1.2mm grain siz), the Fiji White Sand is characterized by many other qualities:
ATI Fiji White sand is 99.6% pure calcium and magnesium compounds, making it one of the cleanest materials that you get on the market today.
Very high reflectance properties:
Due to the high purity the sand is particularly white. This is ideal for giving a full brightness of the aquarium. The Fiji White sand is ideal for light-hungry corals because these pieces will also receive a higher proportion of diffuse radiation from below.
No extreme drifts
Because of its higher density than comparable Aragonite sand, Fiji White sand is much heavier and remains better in the floor.
The sand should be washed several times before use in the aquarium. The existing dust content, which is always produced by friction during transportation etc. should be washed out as far as possible. To do this, rinse the sand as long as no more until the water milky / white and is mostly clear.
