Bit finer than I expected but now it’s in the tank it looks fantastic. Plants are able to grip tightly and it’s far easier replanting stray floating plants than before when I had big gravel. Would definitely recommend this gravel.

Very fine sand easy to plant into good natural colour. Took a fair amount of washing before it was clear.

I bought this sand as a replacement for Senegal sand, (discontinued), and was pleasantly surprised, perfect grain size for planting, and fishes to dig around in. Very easily cleaned too, not forgetting Aquaessentials super fast deliveries!

This Nyasa sand has a larger grain size than standard silver sand making it more manageable. The 12.5k Unipac that I bought from Aqua Essentials required very little rinsing and as soon as I had filled the Aquarium the water was crystal clear. The picture can be a little deceiving as this still has the same orange/brown colour of silver sand but with black grains making it look a little darker which is perfect for my Dwarf puffer tank. Yes I had to pay a little extra because of P&P but in my opinion it was worth it to get exactly what I wanted.

Great sand, had my wilds breeding within a week!

the corys love it! Congo sand needs a lot of rinsing because there is very fine dust that will still go into the tank and cloud the water, even after long rinsing but it does clear and looks good

Hi, Please can you tell us how many 12.5 kg bags do we need to give approx 30mm depth of sand in an Aquarium 140cm x 39cm. We want to keep Geophagus Cichlids in this Tank, and is 30mm depth of sand about right? Kind Regards, Alan and Ruth.
