(Video) Caribsea Sand Black Hawaiian - Comparison with other sand

Recommended Posts

Aqua Splendor

Hello,

I bought a bag of caribsea black sand Hawaiian for my nano project and I wanted to show you what it look like, I haven't seen anyone making a comparison like this so I hope this will give you an idea.

I'm currently waiting for a ICP test and once I receive it I will publish the results with you 🙂

Alright I just receive some news about this:
#1 The bag I bought was mislabeled and it was the Info Pacific Sand that is discontinued
#2 I receive my ICP test and ...

I don't feel comfortable putting SPS/LPS in my tank with some of those concentration, some of them are fine and can get depleted with algae and other but stuff like nickel, manganese (super high), Silicon, worry me a lot


If you have feedback on this let me know.
Small stuff but:
- My salinity is set at 20ppt for cycling, disregards major element section
- Tropic Marin Reef Pro salt
- Seachem Matrix for bio media
- Keep in mind this is a mix of the "black Hawaiian" (Info Pacific) and Eco-Complete sand from Caribsea

I can't believe you separated the Hawaiian black sand! I really enjoy your videos and their great production value 🙂

I can't believe either 😅
And what you are going to see on the episode 7 of my nano reef series will... be shocking lol

 

Also super important note that I edited in the comments of my video:
The bag was actually a Indo Pacific, caribsea had trouble with their labeling so this is a mistake, also this kind of bag is discontinued.

I try to reach Caribsea 3 time but they don't answer unfortunately 😞
