There are many benefits for using aquarium sand especially for aquariums. Most fish prefer sand as their substrate, and some actually require it to feel at ease and for natural spawning behavior. Some fish use sand to help with their digestion. Aqua Terra aquarium sand also has a very nice, smooth look and it is fun to watch the fish play in the sand. Aquarium sand is perfect for soft belly fish like stingrays, corydoras and other bottom dwelling fish. 

Also known as cosmetic sand, this sand can be used in aquascapes. Plants can be planted but be advised that sand is inert and has no nutritional value. You will need supplimentation with nutrition capsules.

Great for freshwater aquariums and terrariums (air plant displays, soil mixes).
