Description

Pearl Beach™ is an all natural aragonite substrate for all types of marine, reef and tropical aquaria. Its chemical composition will assist in stabilizing calcium and alkalinity while preventing large pH declines. Unlike competing “wet” gravels, Pearl Beach™ is sold dry: this bag contains 35% more gravel than a bag of wet gravel of equal weight. These “wet” gravels are marketed to give one the impression that they contain living, microscopic animals when in fact they only contain common bacteria. Dry or wet, there are bacteria on every substrate. If one is concerned with shortening the aquarium cycle time for a new system, then the use of a product designed for that particular purpose would be more appropriate (such as Seachem’s Stability®).

To determine the number of bags required for your aquarium, please note that each bag (10 kg, 22 lbs) occupies a volume of 8,600 cm3 (525 cu. in.). To determine your desired volume multiply tank width by length by desired depth.

Directions

Although it is pre-washed, because Pearl Beach™ is a natural product, it may become dusty in transit and require rinsing before use to remove any residual dust.

TIPS: When adding water to aquarium, fill slowly to avoid disturbing Pearl Beach™ bed. Place a bowl in the aquarium and add water directly to the bowl, allowing water to overflow softly on to the gravel bed. Initial cloudiness is normal. To remove cloudiness, use mechanical filtration (such as filter floss). Use Clarity® to accelerate clearing.

Meridian™ is an all natural oolitic (spherical or egg shaped) aragonite substrate for all reef and marine aquaria. Meridian™ is the premium aragonite substrate for the reef aquaria. It’s grain size (a fairly uniform 0.25 – 0.50 mm) is ideally suited to reef inhabitants and it’s chemical composition will assist in stabilizing calcium and alkalinity while preventing large pH declines. Unlike competing “wet” products marketed under the guise of being “live”, Meridian™ is sold dry, thus you pay only for gravel and not for unneeded water. These products imply that they contain living, microscopic animals when in fact they only contain common bacteria. Dry or wet, there are bacteria on every substrate available. If one is concerned with shortening the aquarium cycle time for a new system, then the use of a product designed for that particular purpose would be more appropriate (such as Seachem’s Stability®).

Directions

Simply rinse before use to remove any residual dust. To determine the number of bags required for your aquarium, please note that each bag (9 kg, 20 lbs) occupies a volume of 5,300 cm3 (320 cu. in.). To determine your desired volume multiply tank width by length by desired depth.
