CARIBSEA OCEAN DIRECT CARIBBEAN LIVE SAND OOLITE
 
01:39
Ocean Direct Oolite is known for its uniquely spherical, uniform gradation. This ultra fine, creamy white substrate is ideal for burrowing creatures and great for shallow or deep beds. Particle size is less than 1mm (with most particles less than .6 mm). Ocean Direct Oolite Live Sand is also the quickest and safest way to begin a new saltwater aquarium. It contains up to 1000 times more beneficial bacteria than other live sand due to the "Sea Breathe Technology" it uses to preserve the live sand. Every grain of Ocean Direct Oolite sand is coated with bacteria and contained in a thin film of real ocean water.

Tank Update - CaribSea Arag-Alive Fiji Pink Sand
 
04:26
Sand is in! The tank is officially fully equipped and cycling! For substrate I went with CaribSea's FijiPink sand (link below). The sand grain size is fine enough to be aesthetically pleasing without it being light enough to get blown all over the place. It has the nice beigh-white sand color that I see in the Caribbean.

The best way to clean dry sand
 
04:13
The dry sand I used was Aragonite from CaribSea. This sand was very dirty and needed some cleaning. The reason I used dry sand was the cost. Live sand could get expensive especially when you need a lot of it. With a little bit of cleaning you can save yourself a lot of money! No need to bend over and mixing with your hands! Save some time and let the mixing arm do all the work! You can find the mixing arm like the one I used here: Mixing arm https://amzn.to/2wx5BFc Sand - Carib Sea Aragonite Crushed Coral https://amzn.to/2Qd1mqr

sand bed setup for new 125 gallon saltwater aquarium
 
03:27
sand bed setup for saltwater aquarium. shallow or deep sandbed in saltwater aquarium? What type of sand? I prefer non live sand. Most sand you buy in the sealed bags is mostly dead because it has been sealed in a bag! This can have die-off, which is dead or partial-rotting of what was once alive. When you add this to your tank, it can spike your nitrates a bit. This is not good since you don't want nitrates in your tank to begin with. I like starting with non live sand and let the bacteria build over time naturally. I also use non-crushed coral sand. Crushed coral sand holds onto the nitrates. This video shows what sand I use and how I put the sand bed down. I will usually go with a shallow sand bed. A deep sand bed is good for the break down of nitrates but if you stir that sand bed up, and let those gases escape into your tank, that can be very bad! www.rottertube.com CaribSea Arag-Alive 20-Pound Special Grade Reef Sand, Bahamas Oolite https://amzn.to/2rCXxjF Dead sand, in the aquarium trade, refers to sand that has not been populated by beneficial bacteria and other organisms, unlike live sand. Adding a culture of nutrifying bacteria to a well-aerated, wet sand bed can usually produce live sand. A deep sand bed is commonly defined as a bed of fine sand with a minimum depth of four to six inches which ensures that a portion of the sand at the bottom will not be exposed to significant circulation of water. An established deep sand bed consists of sand populated with bacteria, algae and other marine organisms such as worms, crabs, snails and stars. The creatures burrow and overturn the top two to three inches of sand in search of food, which causes water to circulate deeper in the sand than it would if the creatures were not present. Deep sand beds may be made of a variety of materials, but typically fine or "superfine" sand is used, with a grain size between 1 mm and 0.05 mm. A larger particle size increases circulation, which in turn requires greater depth to establish anaerobic areas. Larger particles can also inhibit the burrowing of small animals, which would limit circulation into the bed. Additionally, larger particles (2 mm or larger) are prone to detritus accumulation, which necessitates periodic siphon cleaning.

saltwater aquarium live sand and rock
 
05:23
Live rock and live sand is a superior biological filter that hosts both aerobic and anaerobic nitrifying bacteria require for the nitrogen cycle that processes waste. CaribSea Arag-Alive 20-Pound Special Grade Reef Sand, Bahamas Oolite https://amzn.to/2KW0y6N Live rock becomes the main biological nitrification base or biological filter of a saltwater aquarium. Additionally, live rocks have a stabilizing effect on the water chemistry, in particular on helping to maintain constant pH by release of calcium carbonate. Lastly, live rock, especially when encrusted with multiple colors of coralline algae, becomes a major decorative element of the aquarium and provides shelter for the inhabitants. It is often used to build caves, arches, overhangs, or other structures in the tank, a practice known as aquascaping. The use of live rock immediately introduces into the aquarium numerous algae, bacteria and small invertebrates, all of which contribute to the overall quality of the aquarium water. Live rock has just as much, if not more, surface area for bacteria than a trickle filter. Since live rock in the aquarium contains various types of bacteria, algae and corals, waste products such as ammonia, nitrate and phosphate can have a number of fates. Ammonia, nitrate and phosphate are readily assimilated by algae and photosynthetic corals growing on and in the rock. Ammonia can also be quickly converted into nitrate by the bacteria on and in the rock. This nitrate can be either absorbed by the algae and corals, or it can be denitrified by bacteria in close proximity to the nitrate-producing bacteria. Live rock must however be cured prior to aquarium installation. Many of the organisms that previously lived in the rock would have died off during the harvesting and transportation process posing a risk to an immature aquarium of rapid ammonia production due to the dead organisms decomposing. To combat this a curing process must be carried out involving leaving the rock to sit in water for up to several weeks to ensure all dead organisms have decomposed and no longer pose a threat to water quality. live sand and rock for marine reef aquarium. beneficial bacteria live in live sand and rock in marine aquariums. beneficial bacteria break down pollutants in your water such as ammonia (fish pee) and uneaten food. when you start a new aquarium there are no bacteria present. you need to allow this bacteria to grow, which is called cycling your aquarium. it is important to not have any fish in your aquarium while cycling your tank. you can start the cycle by feeding your tank with no fish in it. the food will break down slowly and rot, starting the cycle. feeding small amounts for a week will start this out. you can buy bacteria in a bottle from your local fish store. this will help but sometimes bacteria in the bottle is already dead. I will add the contents, per the directions, when starting a new tank. Some people have bought a piece of shrimp at the butcher, placing it in their tank and allowing it to rot. Bad people use live fish. They will purchase cheap fish, put them in the tank, and feed them. The urine and waste from these fish will start the cycle of the tank. Sadly, the ammonia levels in a new tank spike very high, creating very high toxic levels that will kill the fish. This is cruel. You should test your aquarium with an ammonia test kit. Ammonia will spike very high at the end of the cycle and then plummet to almost zero. It is at this time when it is safe to add fish. www.rottertube.com ROTTER Tube filter for saltwater aquarium.

RSM650S Day 60 added sand
 
01:12
Started adding the sand, I use CaribSea Arag-Alive Bahamas Oolite sand. I had to change the flow (not the amount, but the direction) in the tank because it blew the sand all over and into the water, now it looks OK with much lower flow at or near the bottom, wich is better for LPS anyway. Only added enough to cover about a quarter of the bottom today because it is a type of "live" sand and I don`t want to risk an ammonia spike incase it contains something nasty. Will add the rest in increments over the next days after measuring ammonia and nitrite to be certain it does not contain any of that. This type of sand is said by the manufacturer to speed up the cycle when starting up a new tank, that is one of the reasons why I did not add it all at once. Also I had to move some corals (Frogspawn, Acan, Plate and Goniopora) so there is some retraction of polyps especially on the Goniopora. The Frogspawn got moved because it was turning brown, so I moved it to a place with a bit less intense light. The Goniopora got moved to a place with less flow because of retraction and losing a bit of color.

My New / First Saltwater Aquarium
 
03:30
This is my first saltwater aquarium so I thought I would record my journey. The tank is a 58 gallon Oceanic Reef Ready aquarium. I got the tank for a steal from a guy who was moving and posted it to Craigslist. All of this was only $300: Tank, stand, hood, day/night lights with alternating timer, main tank and sump heater, 2 Hydor powerheads with the Hydor wavemaker alternating controller, all plumbing, return pump, sump, nets, scrapers, siphon, test kits, food, automatic fish feeder, salt, water holding tanks (4), magnet cleaner, thermometer, power strips, additives, and I'm sure I'm missing a few small things. He already sold the RODI unit so I bought pre-mixed saltwater from the local pet store for the initial setup (only took about 55 gallons total for the aquarium, sump, and skimmer). I bought a Coralife 65gal Protein Skimmer for $95 on sale from $199 at Petco, 30lbs of CaribSea Arag-Alive Bahamas Oolite Aquarium Sand from Petco, 20lbs of CaribSea Arag-Alive Fiji Pink Aqurium Sand from BulkReefSupply.com, 30lbs of Pukani Dry Aquarium Live Rock from BulkReefSupply.com, a simple clamp light from Home Depot with a low kelvin spiral light bulb for the sump, some Kato algae for the sump, a filter sock for the sump intake (no holder needed since fits on the sump chamber 1 edges), a ball check valve (not installed yet) to keep water from back-flowing down the return in case of power outage ($17 on ebay) and the adapters and hose clamps from Home Depot, and finally Bio Spira to help jump start the cycling. This video is day one of the tank being fully setup. The cloudiness in the water has almost completely dissipated in the past 24 hours. The skimmer is off since I added the Bio Spira but it will be turned on in 72 hours. The tank was pretty dirty so I keep cleaning the sides and will replace the filter sock after the first week. My plan is to also check all the water conditions in 1 week and hopefully be able to add my first fish and cleaner pack in 2 weeks. Thanks for watching and feel free to comment!

Review: Macro Rocks Fine Aragonite Sand
 
02:20
This is a review of fine aragonite sand I purchased from a vendor in Florida called Macro Rocks. Aragonite sand is formed from the skeletons of marine animals such as coral and shellfish. It's important in maintaining the PH of marine aquariums. White silica sand can look like aragonite but it is not the same and does not help regulate PH. www.aquaticcastle.com

Earth Caching | Strolling through the woods
 
05:38
Hello everyone and welcome back! In this video we go on a hunt for a earth cache to claim one of the souvenir from the 2015 road trip event. What made this an earth cache location? Well the rock behind me are made out of large slabs of oolitic limestone laid down between 210 and 140 million years ago. From the cache page 'Oolitic rock is sedimentary rock made up of small, almost spherical granules known as ooids. This limestone is made of tiny ball shaped grains called ooids usually about 1 to 2 mm across. Grains of quartz sand and fragments of shell and other fossils may be among them. Ooids are formed as layers of calcite builds up around grains of sand that are being rolled along the sea bed by the sea's currents. In time, the layers are packed down by the weight of the layers on top. Over millions of years they become solid rock' This location ended up being really interesting with a large trail to walk along. Another place I never knew existed Hope you enjoyed this video, Like I said at the end I'm really really sorry about the helicopter noise. I will not let that happen again! Apart from that I hope you enjoyed the video, thanks for watching and as always I'll see you next time. Music from the YouTube library Music in this video: 'Strolling Through' - By Silent Partner ------- My Disclaimer: Some people may find this video a spoiler. When I film these videos I mention no main locations that I feel would compromise the geocache. I also refrain from matching the geocache name in anyway. When I find a geocache that I feel is a unique hide I will do what can to get permission from the member who placed the cache before I upload the video.

Week 12: Proof: Live Sand isn't as dull as you thought! | 52 Weeks of Reefing #BRS160
 
09:42
http://brs.li/BRS160_Week12 We're a dozen weeks into the BRS160, and we're making a ton of progress! This week were weighing all of our options for sand, and choosing which is best for us. Follow along with us and discover which sand is best for you and your system! In the reef tank sand provides surface area for beneficial bacteria to populate and filter your tank. However, If you have enough live rock or filtration media in the sump it's not required for that purpose. The main reason reefers use sand is purely for aesthetic appeal. Everyone has a different idea of what looks nice, but most of us prefer the tank to have sand of some type. The biggest difference between the different sands is size of the grains and to some degree the color. So how much sand should you use, and at what depth? To be honest this depends on personal preference, but the most common range is anywhere from a half inch to two inches. For the most part this is really just a balance between aesthetics and trying to prevent the sand bed becoming a nutrient sink. Shallow sand beds a low as half an inch are popular because it is really easy to maintain the sand and keep it clean. A couple of sand sifting fish like diamond gobies might even be enough. However, it’s a lot easier for bare spots to appear in these shallow sand beds from flow. Sand beds as deep as two inches sometimes look nicer and are much more difficult to create bare spots from strong flow, however most reefers find sand to be a huge nutrient sink and the reason most would never go beyond two inches. Personally, I think a one inch sand bed is a pretty good compromise. It’s fairly easy to keep clean and will likely keep the bottom of the tank covered. If not you can always adjust the flow or add more sand later. On the BRS160 we narrowed it down to two options. We like the oceans direct original grade because I can appreciate the concept of natural ocean bacteria, but we ultimately selected the Caribsea Special Grade reef because I like the more uniform grain sizes and lack of huge six millimeter particles. *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.
