Large, even-sized granules of different shades give a nice effect. Not so fine that it easily wafts around the tank.

I mixed this with Kivu to get a varied colour . Exactly right for corys.

Excellent sub i use for my freshwater rays and arowana. Very fine surface. Using for for a planted tank i would suggest a depth of 4cm due to the fine texture. Doesnt cloud water. Overall a pleasure to use.

Great quality product, super clean and as described. Very happy - although biased as I am South African so I now have "home" gravel in my tanks :-) Excellent quality and reasonable delivery charges - can recommend

I thoroughly recommend aqua essentials. As a first time buyer I thought their service was fantastic and delivery was extremely quick. I was very happy with the limpopo sand, it was very quick to wash unlike some and is a beautiful colour in the tank. Couldn't ask for more!

Ask a question about this product
I am setting up a new aquarium and am wondering what sand is the most suitable for bottom dwellers (bristlenose pleco and zebra loaches). I would like to buy a black sand but I have seen Tahaitian Moon sand described as unsuitable for bottom dwellers but not sure why? Is it better to go for a slightly coarser sand for bottom dwellers i.e. like the Limpopo 1mm grains?


Tahitan moon sand tends to be a little sharp for corys and this is why it's not advisable.

Limpopo is a little smoother in comparison and as a result might be better for you.

I hope this helps.

i was wondering if uni pac Limpopo sand is PH neutral or does it affect the PH reading if used in a soft water aquarium?

Like most gravels and sands it might effect the pH a little but certainly nothing to be concerned about.

Are you able to tell me if this is a natural product? I know there are some on the market that are covered in coloured resin.

Yes it's a natural product :)
